Work History

04/05- 04/08 Institute for Chemical Technology and Polymer Chemistry, University of Karlsruhe, Germany
PostDoc.: Chemical vapor deposition and infiltration of pyrolytic carbon.

The CVI project was performed in the Sonderforschungsbereich 551 “Carbon from the gas phase: elementary reactions, structures, materials” supported by the Deutsche Forschungs-gemeinschaft. In this project, I am responsible for experimental design, modeling and simulation of chemical vapor infiltration/ deposition (CVI/CVD) of pyrolytic carbon from light hydrocarbons. I try to give deep insight into the complex interaction of multi-physical and chemical phenomena involved in CVI processes and figure out the governing relationship between processing parameters and properties of composites.

Academic staff: Carbon related projects

My research interests focus on fundamental research on modeling, simulation and synthesis of fiber reinforced composites (such as C/C, SiC/C and SiC/SiC) by chemical vapor infiltration processes.
