– Undergraduate researcher 2017 – 2018
• Identified the properties and characteristics expected from thermal insulation panels used for different end-applications
• Innovated a thermal insulation panel using post-industrial nylon/spandex and polyurethane waste by hot compression moulding without using any binders (after several experiments, it was identified that nylon itself could act as a binder when hot compressing carried out at melting temperature of nylon).
• Characterized and optimized the developed panel based on the thermal conductivity and impact strength results.
