My research field or area of interest innanotechnology

Physico-chemical properties of technological fibers, polymers, and composite/nanocomposite materials (e.g., modelling viscoelastic behaviour, study of fiber/matrix interfaces, recycling of plastic, optimization of formulations and processing of composites/nanocomposites).

Interest in...

1 - polymer nanocomposites with diffrerent nanophases including, magnetic nanofluids, nanofillers (e.g., nanoclays) and nanofibers (e.g., carbon nanotubes); 2 - viscoelastic behaviour 3 - modified laminates (for increased toughness/impact resistance); 4 - speciality polymers (toughening strategies); 5 - polymer recycling (e.g., plastic lumber products);
