Biography

Dr. Jasjeet Kaur is a postdoctoral research fellow at Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation (CSIRO, Manufacturing), Australia. Her research focuses on production of high quality polyacrylonitrile based carbon fibre precursors by optimising wet spinning parameters. The aim of the research is to understand the influence of precursor properties on the carbon fibre properties. Her other research interests include bicomponent wet spinning to synthesise primarily polyacrylonitrile based hybrid fibres with an additional material for bespoke applications such as low cost, functional fibres and light weighting.
She has obtained a PhD degree from Deakin University in 2015. Her thesis was entitled "Silk cocoon: structure and properties". Her work was published in high impact journals such as Biomacromolecules and her research was highlighted in the "Geelong Advertiser", on University's website and on TV program "Scope".
