Project Title

Multifunctional transparent wood composites.

My research activities focus on the modification of wood template and its functionalization to design novel wood-based materials. Transparent wood is one example of wood template functionalization for light-transmitting applications. New materials properties can be obtained by infiltrated various polymer systems into the porous wood template.

The figure below shows a demonstration of a multifunctional transparent wood for thermal energy storage applications.
