Dr Sagar T. Cholake

Contact details: 

Sagar T. Cholake submitted his PhD thesis in Sept 2015 in Materials Science at School of Material Science and Engineering department of UNSW, Sydney. In his PhD course, he worked on the development of SMCF modified toughened epoxy matrix for superior and inexpensive infrastructural CFRP laminates. Currently working with the SMaRT Centre at UNSW, he is involved in the research of various materials including steel, polymers and light weight aggregates. Sagar also has MSc. Tech degree from UNSW, Sydney, in which he worked on various polymers and fly ash and published book chapter. Before joining UNSW, Sydney, he has gained a B. Tech degree in Metallurgy and Material Science from COEP, Pune, India, where he mainly worked on steel. Sagar has contributed a chapter to Advances in Environmental Research, and has had several papers pubhished in well-known international journals:
