Research

As an Associate Professor and University Faculty Scholar in the Fiber and Polymer Science program, Dr. Gao’s research interests lie at the interface between materials chemistry, textile engineering and renewable energy-related technologies, such as supercapacitors, batteries and fuel cells. Her current research directions include:

  1. Fiber-extrusion processes from two-dimensional materials for various applications
  2.  Yarn-shaped energy-storage devices and textile-based triboelectric nanogenerators
  3. Two-dimensional adsorbents for PFAS, orthophosphate, and heavy metals in wastewater.
