Research Interests

The main scientific interest concerns the chemistry and physics of functional nanomaterials, laminated composites and hierarchically structured materials with emphasis on polymer based (nano)composites; biomimetic synthesis and rapid prototyping manufacturing of polymer composites with reliability, efficiency and green principles for engineering applications; interaction of chemistry and mechanics, bridging chemical scales to continuum theories of materials; structure-properties-processing of polymer nanocomposites.


Biography

Dr Chaoying Wan is an Associate Professor in multifunctional nanocomposites. She specialises in polymer synthesis and characterisation of multiphase/multicomponent nanocomposites, exploitation of multifunctionality for energy storage applications. She has expertise in developing reactive processing of thermoplastic-, thermoset- and elastomer-based blends/alloys and nanocomposites through in situ polymerisation and reactive extrusion. She worked on polymer nanocomposites for biomedical devices at Loughborough University as a postdoctoral researcher, prior to a Marie Curie Fellowship at Trinity College Dublin during 2009 and 2011.
