Dr. Aji. P. Mathew (Ph.D) is a polymer chemist and Associate Professor at Division of Materials and Environmental Chemistry, Stockholms University, Sweden. She has 14 years of experience in the field of cellulose nanocrystals, cellulose nanofibers, chitin nanocrystals and their nanocomposites. Her research work is focused on isolation of nanoreinforcements from different natural resources and their use as reinforced bionanocomposites, biomedical implants, water cleaning membranes etc. She has extensive experience on processing of biobased nanocomposites by solution casting, twin-screw extrusion, two-roll mill mixing, electrospinning and melt-spinning. Characterization of bionanomaterials using mechanical testing, thermal analysis, atomic force microscopy, X-ray analysis and surface characterisation are her areas of research interest. Prof. Mathew has published over 80 peer–reviewed articles (H–Index 21) and has about 80 conference contributions, 16 book chapters, 7 edited books and about 15 invited presentations to her credit.
