Overview

The core research programs are geared to addressing critical needs for the development of cellulose nanocomposites and sensors that are useful for industrial applications. The interdisplinary group of researchers provides a unique combination of expertise, in cellulose, chemistry, polymers, modeling, composites, mechanics, biomaterial engineering, metrology, etc. The programs are complimentary in that research goals in one program can be applied to address critical needs in the other programs.
