Prof. Shulin Bai
Biography: Professor Shulin Bai obtained his PhD degree from Ecole Centrale des Arts et Manufactures de Paris, France in1993. His expertise is in the area of polymer matrix composites filled with particles (graphene, CNTs, BN, SiO2, etc.) and fibers (carbon fiber, glass fiber, etc.), specially on processing and properties including thermal, electrical and mechanical properties. He has published about 140 journal papers and 40 conference papers. His current research focuses on design, manufacture and thermal/electrical/mechanical properties of nanofillers filled polymer nanocomposite, as well as processing and application of long fiber reinforced thermoplastics (LFT). He is founder, chairman/co-chairman of Asia-Europe Symposium on Processing and Properties of Reinforced Polymers for many times.
