    Funded PhD Project (Students Worldwide)

Project Description

A PhD scholarship is available for developing advanced cellulose based materials. The candidate will have the opportunity to work with a world leading materials research group within the Institute for Frontier Materials, Deakin University, Australia.

The utilisation of waste into value added products is a key component to creating a circular economy. Cellulose can be extracted from a variety of waste streams, this project will explore the influence cellulose type has on the properties of the regenerated material. Cellulose aerogels and cellulose beads will be developed with application in biomedical and energy devices. This project will also explore novel processing methods including 3D printing.

The aim of this project is to develop new cellulose based materials from a variety of cellulose waste feedstock including textile waste. As part of this project the student will:

explore the influence of cellulose feedstock on the properties of the regenerated cellulose material
explore novel processing methods for cellulose including 3D printing
develop structure processing property relationship for regenerated cellulose materials

Funding Notes
