Overview

My research is covering a number of themes:

1) Nanoparticle's functionality, dispersibility and toxicities of antimicrobial nanoparticles (AVNP) for biomedical and healthcare applications. This also includes conjugates between nanoparticles and drug-related chemicals for biomedical applications (i.e. nanoparticles conjugated bis-tris-phosphonates).

2) Characterisation and applications of antiviral & antimicrobial bulk metals (e.g. stainless steels, Ti/Mg alloys) and polymers. The project has been a continuation of AVNP consortium project sponsored by the DTI (£3.2M 2006-10). The project was aiming at the creation of the AVNP with controlled nanotoxicity.

3) My other research field also included a lightweight fibre-reinforced polymer and ceramic composites, natural fibre and fabrics, and their sustainable. The project covered with fibre surface treatment, as well as functional nanomaterials for composite applications in Radar Cross-section (RCS) reduction used in wind turbine rotor blades. I was also involved in a collaborative scheme for fission energy jointly working with ICL, Oxford, and NDA. The initial project was for developing UK-China research collaborations in nuclear waste management, including the involvement in clay minerals and stainless steels for nuclear-engineered barrier system EBS in the possible geological repository.
