Welcome to FML!

We are a bunch of energetic and passionate researchers who conducts interdisciplinary research in the field of surface science and engineering. We are interested in fabricating and characterizing the porous ceramics and micro/nano textured polymers and ceramics for tackling real-life challenges in the environmental and food sectors.  

The primary research interests of our group are:

  • Nature Inspiration strategies

  • Non Wetting Surfaces

  • Sustainable materials and processes

  • Colloidal and Powder Processing of Ceramics

  • Tribology of microtextured/porous surfaces and 2D materials
