Dr. Ma’s research focuses on the development of novel, scalable techniques for processing nanoparticles into multifunctional, high performance materials. In particular, he seeks to develop nanoparticle-stabilized foams for enhanced oil recovery and “smart” polymer nanocomposites for aerospace applications.
He is the founding president of the Carbon Nanotube Club and the recipient of the J. Evans Attwell-Welch Fellow award, presented by the Richard E. Smalley Institute for Nanoscale Science and Technology. He has published one book chapter and seven first author journal articles. read his profile
