Tajvidi studies the production, characterization and performance of renewable nanomaterials and their composites. He is particularly interested in mechanical properties of nano-materials and nanocomposites, structure-property relationships, viscoelastic behavior, dynamic mechanical analysis and magnetic cellulose nanocomposites. Tajvidi’s core research area focuses on the utilization of cellulose nanomaterials in high volume applications such as coatings, packaging and building products. His current work includes developing PFAS-free food containers from nanocellulose. Visit Tajvidi’s biography to learn more.
