Field of interest:

Composite materials, physical/mechanical properties and characteristics. Experiments and modelling (micromechanical and analytical). Special interest in new types of fibre and matrix materials, in particular natural fibres and biopolymeric matrices. Manufacturing conditions and materials properties. Microstructure, volumetric composition, moisture sorption, mechanical properties.
