Oisik’s research activities pertain to carbon-based materials and polymeric composites, specifically the improvement of their performance properties (e.g. mechanical, flammability, dimensional) through physical and chemical means. Of particular interest is the production and characterisation of biochar (i.e. bio-based carbon materials) for composite applications. Oisik has extensive experience in determining the material properties of numerous types of biochars through nanoindentation. Additionally, Oisik is interested to enhance the fire resistant properties of polymeric composites by using both conventional and natural fire retardants.
Oisik worked at KTH Royal Institute of Technology, Stockholm, Sweden for two years as post-doctoral fellow conducting research on bio-based polymers and their composites. Oisik did his PhD at the Centre for Advanced Composite Materials (CACM) in the University of Auckland, New Zealand. His research was focused on the utilisation of biochar (obtained from pyrolysis/thermo-chemical conversion of lignocellulosic wastes) in areas of biocomposite development. Oisik's master's degree is from Washington State University, Pullman, USA where he worked on the thermo-chemical conversion of lignocellulosic biomass to produce value added products (e.g. biocarbon and bio-oil). In the past, Oisik served Maharishi Markandeshwar (M.M.) University in India as Assistant Professor where he worked with his students regarding various applications of biocarbon/biochar.
