Research Statement
The research activities of Prof. Aksay include the utilization of colloidal and biomimetic techniques in materials processing. In recent years, his work has mainly focused on the utilization of complex fluids and field manipulation to control the nanoscale architecture of organic/ceramic composites. He and his coworkers' research has been recognized not only in his contributions to the literature on the fundamentals of materials processing but also in the direct application of his research to industrial manufacturing.
