Participated and led development of new extruders and dies, perform extensive rheological characterization of polymers and highly filled suspensions, including detergents, polymers, micro-processor encapsulants, thermal pastes, various highly filled propellant and explosive formulations etc
Recently get involved in cartilage tissue engineering by building scaffolds through fiber spinning via continuous twin-screw extrusion of bio degradable polymers, such as polyethylene glycol, poly vinyl alcohol, PCL etc. for bio-medical applications
