Your Position:Prof. Tao XIE's Group


Founded in 2013, our group is broadly interested in both fundamental and applied aspects of multifunctional polymer materials. Before the founding of the group, the senior group leaders had already established international reputation in shape memory polymers, biomimetic smart polymers, and hydrogels. Building upon this solid foundation, we aim to significantly broaden our research into various other types of multifunctional polymer materials, with particular emphasis on new enabling mechanisms, unprecedented material properties...
New discovery of polyurethane: Plasticity and Kirigami A recent research has been published in Science Advances and highlighted by Nature A cover paper in Advanced Functional Materials As a new group, we are recruiting students and postdocs. Those who are interested in joining the group as junior faculty members may also contact us. Tao Xie will give an invited talk at Polymers for Advanced Technologies 2013 Conference in Berlin (September 2013).
