  • Research Interests

Development and utilisation of innovative, safe, cost-effective, and environmentally friendly polymer nanomaterials and technologies for sustainable energy applications for everyone on the planet for generations to come.

I am currently focusing on 3 main areas:

  1. Sustainable Energy,
  2. Functional Polymeric Nanomaterials,
  3. Advanced Characterization tools of polymer properties.
