(2) Research

My current research interest comprises various topics of chemical engineering and polymer physics including non-Newtonian fluid and transport phenomena in chemical engineering, the rheology and thermodynamics of polymer/surfactant and their application  in  turbulent  drag reduction and oil recovery.  I am also interested in the dynamics,rheology and tribology of polymer and their application in aerospace lubrication and nanomechanics.
