Research Interests

  • Surface science and the tribological (friction and wear) behavior of materials
  • Pedagogical experiments for introductory materials science courses, and engineering design principles applied to mechanical engineering  ducation and materials science education
  • Characterization of polymeric and composite materials for use in engineering applications (e.g., mechanical, thermal, and viscoelastic properties)
  • The influence of manufacturing and processing conditions on the mechanical and tribological behavior of injection-molded polymers and polymer composites
  • Design of simulatory test equipment for evaluating the friction and wear performance of advanced materials when they are used in actual applications
