Research Interests

I am interested in exploring new applications and developing advanced strategies for molecular hybrids.

Thermal Barrier Coatings

Molecular hybrids have the potential to become protective and thermal barrier coatings for plastic substrates.

3D printing and additive manufacturing

Molecular hybrids are desirable interface materials. 3D printing enables fabrication of complex shapes and structures, extending the potential of molecular hybrids as a stiff polymer-ceramic interfacial material.
