Mechanics And Materials Composites And Polymers
My research interests include the manufacture and testing of tubular braided composites (TBCs), the use of micro-CT for non-destructive analysis of textile composite, optical methods for digital image correlation (DIC) for strain, and strategies for continuous curing of TBCs during manufacture.
Intellectual property in the context of technology transfer and commercialization. Key topics include intellectual property, product development, valuation of technology, capturing value, and securing the deal. Considerations in identifying and developing new products, exploitation of intellectual property as a corporate strategy, the impact of intellectual property in new company formation and growth.Fall Term 2021
