Sanjay Rastogi (S.)
Prof. Rastogi is professor in the Biobased materials research group at Maastricht University where he provides leadership to a group of 2 PhDs, 3 post-docs and a team of six newly appointed assistant professors. The research focuses on a basic understanding to design molecular structure for desired physical properties, and to develop optimal processing techniques in order to produce products with the required macroscopic properties. To accomplish this goal, we have adopted chain-of-knowledge approach combining chemistry, physics and rheological aspects of polymer science. We frequently collaborate with other researchers from around the world.
Prof. Rastogi is also Chair in Polymer Technology at the Loughborough University, UK. From where he is seconded to Teijin Aramid, Arnhem (NL) to transfer our solvent free concept for the development of high modulus high strength tapes required for body armor protection. I chair future innovation programs and steer teams in bringing fundamental concepts to market.
