I am glad you took the time to visit my webpage. Now that you are here, sit back and let me take you through some of the exciting research that I and my colleagues have been doing over the past 7 years or so. 
I will show a sneak-peek of how wood based materials can revolutionize the way we think about plastics, and restructure the ‘sustainability’ debate. I will further discuss how molecular and nano scale engineering can be used to improve materials performance. Feel free to skip some of the excruciating details about the chemical and material aspect of polymers, and enjoy the essence of it.
