Research

Dr Brown's current research interests include, but are not limited to, the production of photonic fibers, the production and properties of hollow fiber membranes for gas separation, phase inversion and the dry jet wet and wet spinning of fibers, electrospinning of fibers and melt spinning of multi-component materials. Additional interests are in the broader areas of textile chemistry and dyeing & finishing.
