Projects


  • Designing a Double Pane Transparent Wood Window, University of Maryland (8/31/2017 - 5/18/2018)

    Led a team of five materials scientists to design a novel double pane transparent wood window. The project aimed to transition the laboratory technology to a market product by combining transparent wood with both high and low (optical) haze. Specifically, we improved upon performance (optical, thermal, mechanical) of current glass windows on the market, identified and confirmed property trends with grain orientation and thickness, minimized overall thermal conductivity, maximized overall optical transmission, and discovered how wood size and orientation affects material properties.
