Assistant Professor



My group focuses on the fundamental understanding of the mechanics and dynamics of polymers and polymer nanocomposites. Currently, special interests will be paid to the dynamics and mechanics of polymer nanocomposites, the fracture mechanics of thermoplastics, and novel polymer membranes for gas separation. One of our targets is to design novel composite materials that can be applied to address emerging challenges in environment and energy, such as gas separation, desalination, batteries, and supercapacitors.
