Current Research

Elucidation of the fundamental challenges to precise control and tailoring of lignocellulosic materials such that new capabilities and research frontiers are established. The means applied toward this end are the science and technology of polymer materials science, adhesion, nanotechnology, surface science, plant biology, anatomy, and microbiology.The outreach goal is to interact with a broad and diverse group of industrial scientists and business people, academic scientists, national & international labs, and colleagues. The focus of this outreach is collaborative research, education, and dissemination of ideas and findings. Interested persons are warmly invited to contact me for discussions and collaboration.
