Why I chose graduate school:
There is no limit to what you learn and one can be student all though his life. I wanted to learn more and to adpat different thinking way to solve problems. I wanted to see different place, meet different people, live in different situtations and neverthless enjoy completely different culture.To make life better for one and everyone around, I think one need to take initatives towards taking positive roles as a leader of society and it can come through sacrifies and education.

About my work:

* Studied epoxy based Nano-composites of PES/Epoxy /Fumed silica prepared by melt mixing using internal mixers.
* Studied reaction induced phase separation in the blends of thermoset and thermoplastics polymers with thermoplastics as major component.
* Characterized composites using SEM, TEM, optical microscope, light scattering techniques, DSC, TGA, DMTA, WAXS, SAXS.
* Studied improvement in Mechanical and thermal properties measurement by modifying composites at nano-scale.

Presentations:

*"Investigation of microstructures and properties of polyethersulphone (PES)-cured epoxy system" (Presented at PPS-16, Sanghai, China, June 18-23 2000).
*"Reaction Induced Phase Separation in Polymeric Blends of Thermoset and Thermoplastic."(The University of Akron, 1999).
*"Goodyear under Sam Gibara" (The University of Akron, 1999)
