Email:  shulin@hawaii.edu
Phone:  956-2245
Interests:  
  •  3D Body Scanning and Digital Fitting Simulation:  Using Kinect or/and Structure with iPad.
  • Textiles: Chinese textiles including Dragon robes and Shiang-Yun-Sa; Hawaiian bark cloth: Kapa; and organic cotton. I examine both new fabrics and historic textiles with modern instruments (i.e., air permeability tester, digital high power microscope and SEM) to explore fiber count, fiber structure, weave pattern, air permeability, dyestuff, and surface and wear characteristics.
  • Textile care and preservation: I apply use my textile knowledge with our textile testing equipment to examine historic textiles and costume and to develop textile conservation. One focus of my textile interests lies in traditional Chinese costume. Many scholars have reported on Chinese dragon robes but to date none have used new technology to analyze textile design and preservation.
  • Functional textiles and clothing design: specialized clothing for special groups; smart textiles for specialized performance; and functional textiles, product development, and production management. I specialize in functional clothing design and seek opportunities for research, creative works, and problem solving in specialized areas of clothing design. One of my functional design projects focused on providing dressing aids and tools for the caregivers of disabled groups and elderly persons, which is especially appropriate with Hawai’i’s growing elderly population.
