Research

Our efforts are largely concerned with establishing structure-property relationships for polymeric materials and composites using fundamental material science principles and a wide range of chemical and mechanical characterization techniques.  Collaborative efforts with numerous members of the plastics industry allow us to understand the needs of the polymer community and to tailor our research work towards fundamental understanding and the development of commercially viable products.
