Assoc Prof Aravind Babu Dasari
Associate Chair (Academic)
Associate Professor, School of Materials Science & Engineering
Aravind obtained his PhD in 2007 from the Center for Advanced Materials Technology (CAMT), The University of Sydney, Australia, under the guidance of Professor Yiu-Wing Mai. Upon completion of PhD, Dr Dasari continued to work as a post-doctoral fellow at Sydney Uni before moving to the Madrid Institute of Advanced Studies of Materials (IMDEA Materials Institute) as a Research Scientist in early 2009 to lead the group on Multifunctional Nanocomposites. After a couple of years of exciting stint in Madrid, he joined NTU as an Assistant Professor in mid-2011. He is currently an Associate Professor at NTU.
Design and development of polymer composites/nanocomposites and coatings thereof for utilization in the construction/building sector, electrical and electronic industries, and renewable energy sector. The specific facets of interests include:
o Flame retardancy of polymers and coatings
o Fire-protections boards and aluminium composite panels
o Thermal spalling behavior of concrete
o Fire retardancy of timber
o Mechanical properties of structural composites
o Tribological behavior
