Kwabena A. Narh

University Heights, USA

Kwabena A. Narh acts as a Professor, Associate Chair, and Undergraduate Advisor at the Mechanical Engineering Department at the New Jersey Institute of Technology (NJIT). He joined NJIT in 1994 from the Cornell University, USA, where he had been a Postdoctoral Research Associate for two years. He received his M.S. and Ph.D. degrees from the University of Bristol, UK, and his B.S. degree from the University of Ghana, Ghana. He teaches mechanical engineering and polymer engineering courses. His research activities involve experiments as well as computer simulations applied to polymer crystallization kinetics, self-reinforcing composites, and thermal contact resistance in material processing. His current research focusses on polymer nanocomposites using carbon nanotubes and the dispersion of carbon nanotubes in a polymer matrix. He has published more than 140 journal and conference papers in the areas of polymer crystallization kinetics, polymer composites (both micro- and nano-), polymer blends, thermal contact resistance in material processing, polymer morphology, and various aspects of polymer related issues. Narh acts as a Member of the Society of Plastics Engineers, Sigma XI, and the American Society for Engineering Education.
