Anshul Singhal's research focuses on reducing natural plant fibers damage and variability occurring during various steps in their extraction process, thus, making natural fibers suitable for structural composite applications at industrial scale. Current work involves controlling chemical parameters of the initial extraction step through enzymatic retting and optimizing the design of later mechanical extraction steps through finite element modeling. This work is in collaboration with Ford Motor Company and also a part of The Global CO2 Initiative at University of Michigan.
