Techtextil North America 2015 announced names of top five participants in The Graduate Student Research Poster Program, which saw participation of colleges from US, Sweden and India.

“Graduate students from leading textile Universities around the world are participating in Techtextil North America’s 2nd Annual Graduate Student Research Poster Program,” a Messe Frankfurt press release said.

The goal of this program is to provide a forum in which students can present and discuss their work during its early stages, meet some of their peers who have related interests, and introduce themselves to more senior members of the field.

It also added that eleven graduate students will showcase the latest research on advanced technologies in textiles, nonwovens and materials during Techtextil North America 2015 next month in Houston, Texas.

Five of those eleven students were chosen by industry experts to present their research during the World-Class Symposium on June 4, 2015.

The top five poster presenters are Siw Eriksson from the Swedish School of Textile, Yijun Fu and Ting He, both from North Carolina State University, Harini Ramaswamy, College of Design, Minnesota and Jessica Won, Georgia Institute of Technology.

The focus areas in nonwovens included; fibres, polymers, nanofibres, functionalisation, medical and hygiene, wipes, filtration and automotive.

In technical textiles focus areas were composites, nanotechnology, smart fabrics, geosynthetics, safety and protective, high performance, automotive, medical, electro textiles and coated fabrics.

Those representing the Graduate Student Poster Program development committee included; Dr. Behnam Pourdeyhimi from the Nonwovens Institute and Dr. Tom Martin from Virginia Tech University.

The committee also had Dr. Sundesarean Jayaraman from Georgia Institute of Technology and Dr. Gang Sun, University of California Davis. (AR)
