Youhong is a material science and engineering researcher with research interests mainly focused on the structure-process-property relations of:
(a) polymeric materials and nanocomposites, especially on rubber and epoxy based multifunctional and value-added nanocomposites;
(b) fibre reinforced composites and structures, particularly for marine applications and;
(c) bioresources, biomaterials and biosensors, especially incorporating novel aggregation-induced emission materials.
Professor Youhong Tang obtained his PhD degree in the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology in 2007. He moved to Flinders University with an ARC-DECRA in 2012 from Centre for Advanced Materials Technology, the University of Sydney.
