My research focused on a number of material's engineering themes:

1)Lightweight fibre-reinforced polymer and ceramic composites, including natural fibre/fabrics and their sustainable composite materials. This also includesfibre surface treatment and functional nanomaterials for composite applications such as for Radar Cross-section (RCS) reduction for wind turbine rotor blades.

2)Nanoparticle's functionality (Antiviral& antimicrobial nanoparticles (AVNP)), dispersibility and toxicities for their applications in biomedical, bio-devices, healthcare, and general engineering applications. This also includes chemical nanoparticle's conjugates for biomedical applications (i.e. nanoparticles conjugated bis-trisphosphonates).

3) Antiviral & antimicrobial bulk metals (i.e. stainless steels, Ti/Mg alloys) and polymers. This is the continuation of antiviral nanoparticles (AVNP)project aiming on overcoming nanotoxicity issues associated with a number of bioengineering applications of these antimicrobial nanoparticles.

4) Material engineering and development for fission energy: inorganic clay minerals and antibacterial stainless steels for engineered barrier system (EBS) for nuclear waste (HLW/SF) disposal, and geological repository. In particularly, the mineral silicates clay for engineered backfill/buffer for the repository, and the canister's re-engineering (materials and design)for the waste management.
