Scientific focus and expertise:
Manufacturing processes for ceramics and ceramic-polymer composites. I have experience in working on metamaterial systems and have a particular interest in the use of low temperature processing routes and production routes for graded materials.

Materials class:
ceramics, polymers, composites

Research challenge:
I am interested in finding metamaterial designs which have not yet been successfully realised which require new materials or manufacturing techniques to be constructed. I am particularly interested in those metamaterials which can be produced using only polymers and ceramic materials. I have a strong interest in the manufacturing of graded materials in particular.
