Biopolymer and Biocomposites Lab

Research focus of our group is on advanced biocomposites and fiber materials. Polymers have become a material of choice in a gamut of applications owing to their structural versatility, processability, and lower density. We are interested in developing composite and nanofibrous materials that can address specific challenges in energy, environment and health care. Currently, our major focus is on  biopolymers/bio-derived nanomaterials and leveraging their properties in piezoelectric composites, microencapsulation and additive manufacturing.
