Project: 3.2.7 Nanocellulose-based superinsulating foams and films for thermal management: processing, properties and performance
Supervisor: Lennart Bergström
Project planned to end: 2021

Research area:

My work is focused on studying the assembly and alignment in nanocellulose-based composite dispersions using X-ray scattering, and the fabrication of ice-templated nanocellulose-based composite foams for thermal insulation, in which the nanoparticles are aligned and the thermal conductivity is therefore very low in a specific direction.
