Innovator Bio

There is a constant need to upgrade the functions and performance of textiles and apparel for the improvement of public health, safety and a sustainable environment. Our research group at CSU addresses this need by focusing on the development of multi-functional fibrous materials through the application of nanotechnology. Our research is rooted in understanding, assessing and controlling the functional performance of fibers and fabrics at the nanoscale. We are highly motivated to move research results from the laboratory into new products in the marketplace.
