Our research is focused on the structure and functionalities of polymer-based nanocomposites, which cover chemistry synthesis of nanoparticles and morphology control, interface characterisation, and manufacturing of polymer-based nanocomposites at large scale.

The relationships of ‘microstructure-properties-processing’ of polymer-carbon nanocomposites are the main research interest. The multifunctional nanocomposites with high electrical conductivity, thermal conductivity and mechanical properties have found a range of applications in structural composites, energy storage systems and food packaging.
