Educational Background

Research Interests

  • Investigation into the consequences of methods used to reduce the cost of production of moulded parts by the injection moulding process.

  • Improve the efficiency of current processing as a result of effective management of heat transfer and the possibility of reducing part weight by improving material performance.

  • Conventional and Pulse cooling technologies.

  • Morphology, nucleation and growth rate analysis of polymers.

  • Isothermal and non-isothermal crystallization of semi-crystalline polymers.

  • Modeling and simulation of non-isothermal crystallization kinetics.

  • Effects of pigments, nucleating agents and recycled polymer on morphology and crystallisation of semi-crystalline polymers.

  • Mechanical properties of extruded and injection moulded semi-crystalline polymers.

  • Effects of pigments, nucleating agents, recycling and orientation on the physical ageing behaviour of polymers.
