Research Interests

  • Synthesis and characterization of high-temperature piezoelectric / ferroelectric material systems
  • Design and micro-fabrication of high-temperature sensor network

Current Research

My research focuses on developing a miniaturized SHM sensor/actuator network that can be embedded into high-temperature composites to provide real-time diagnostics/prognostics for the structures even in extreme environments. Currently we are aiming to integrate our sensor network with high-temperature polymer-matrix composites; in addition, we are also looking into different synthesis/fabrication methods to push the thermal limits of the sensor network higher in order to accommodate applications at higher temperatures.
