Seeram is a global leader in electrospinning and nanostructured materials. Since 2001, Seeram’s team has contributed significantly to the scientific knowledge in basic research, advances in the process and the applications of nanofibers with over 50 publications, and received more than 600 citations for the last 5 years. Seeram authored the first book on electrospinning, An Introduction to Electrospinning and Nanofibers, to facilitate researchers new to the technology in understanding of the process and its capability. This seminal book is a best seller in 2005 and 2006. Using his patented technology he is able to produce one-dimensional fibers and yarns, two-dimensional and three-dimensional oriented nanofiber assemblies from a range of materials. His team is developing electrospun nanofibers for various applications in healthcare, environment, energy, and defense & security.
Seeram serves on the editorial boards of twelve international journals. He has published extensively across a broad range of areas, including biocomposites, tissue engineering, electrospinning, nanofibers, and membranes. He is an advisor to innovation driven companies such as StemLife, Biomers International and NanoComposite, Inc. He is a Fellow of Institution of Mechanical Engineers (FIMechE), UK; Institution of Engineers Singapore (FIES); Institute of Materials, Minerals & Mining (FIMMM), UK; and American Institute for Medical and Biological Engineering (FAIMBE), USA. He is a recipient of the IES Prestigious Engineering Achievement Award and ASEAN Engineering Award in 2006.
