Artistic and research interests
I’m a PhD student working in colloidal chemistry with renewable resources (cellulose, hemicellulose, lignin, chitin, biosurfactants, etc.). My current research focuses on foam related mechanisms (foaming property, stabilization) and potential materials. By incorporating air into foam-based materials/systems, I could make light-weight materials with appreciable strength and insulation properties; and achieve efficient production with less raw materials and energy but more air (e.g. foam forming fabrics). To further take advantage of foam-based materials/system, I’d be interested in collaborating and working on biomimetic foam structure for functional applications in the future.
