Clement Chan is a postdoctoral research fellow at the School of Chemical Engineering, the University of Queensland, Australia, where he obtained his PhD in 2019 with a focus on biocomposites. He is one of the key researchers in the Translational Polymer Research Group. His major research experience stretches across the full spectrum in biocomposites materials development, from manufacturing, in-service performance to end-of-life analysis. Currently, his research focus is on understanding the biodegradation and toxicological impacts of bioplastics and biocomposites in the environment. The outcomes of these research activities aim to address the global challenge of minimising waste, which generates benefits broadly to the community as part of a move towards a ‘zero waste’ and sustainable future.
