Assistant Professor at the Department of Engineering Technology and Industrial Distribution
Dr. Asadi’s research interests encompass scalable processing/manufacturing of hybrid (micro/nano) composites with enhanced properties, additive manufacturing of strong hybrid polymer composites and fabricating biomedical polymer nanocomposites. He is especially interested in understanding underlying mechanisms at multiple length-scales to understand the formation of microstructure and interphase in hierarchical structures in order to develop capabilities to engineer the desired properties in composites. In addition, he is interested in using cellulose nanomaterials along with other nanoparticles to provide scalable and sustainable solutions for composites with enhanced properties.
Shadi started her PhD in Mechanical Engineering at Texas A&M University in Summer 2018. Her research is focused on the experimental and computational study of spray atomization and its applications for additive manufacturing. The main goal of her research is to enhance the mechanical properties of manufactured materials by tuning the processing parameters of spray system. Shadi obtained her Master’s degree in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Houston in 2016.
Mohammad started his PhD in Mechanical Engineering at Texas A&M University in Summer 2018. His research is focused on DFT and molecular dynamics simulation to understand the intermolecular interactions between constituents in hybrid polymer nanocomposites. He obtained his Master’s degree in Mechanical and Manufacturing Engineering from the University of Manitoba, Canada in 2013.
Minh started his PhD in Materials Science and Engineering at Texas A&M University in Spring 2018. His research is focused on fabrication of nanocomposites and hybrid composites with tailored nanostructures and desired performance. Minh his Master’s in Materials Science and Engineering and bachelor degrees in nuclear engineering from Texas A&M University.
Annuatha started her MSc in Mechanical Engineering at Texas A&M University in fall 2017. Her research is focused on scalable manufacturing of hybrid (micro/nano) CFRP composites with enhanced interlaminar strength using cellulose nanocrystals and carbon nanotubes. She is also working on fabrication of artificial cartilages enhanced with cellulose nanocrystals.
