Dr. Xiaomeng Fang

Dr. Fang is an assistant professor in the department of Textile Engineering, Chemistry and Science.

She received her Ph.D. in Fiber and Polymer Science from North Carolina State University in 2017. Prior to joining the NC State faculty, she was a lecturer in Textile Engineering, Chemistry and Science (TECS) department, meanwhile a postdoctoral researcher in the Textile Protection and Comfort Center (TPACC). Dr. Fang has been teaching various textile technology courses (yarn spinning technology, weaving technology, knitting technology and introduction to fiber science) at undergraduate level.

Dr. Fang is fascinated by the art and precision of assembling the tiny little fibers into the variety of products that we use every day and everywhere. Her research work focus on development of advanced flexible/fiber-based electronics, such as fiber actuator, fiber sensor and generator as well as functional/smart textiles assembled by fiber electronics. Additionally, she also investigated textile protection/comfort and textile reinforced composites. Her overarching research interest is application of fibers and textiles to solve many of the life quality issues including health and well-being.
