Processing of ceramics (structural and electroceramic), including ceramic-based composites and nanostructured ceramics.
Particularly interested in Rheological Processing such as:
- Powder formation, e.g. freeze drying
- Rheological Processing, e.g. gel casting, freeze casting, in-situ coagulation moulding
- Microwave Processing, including sintering, chemical vapour infiltration, joining, slip casting, reaction bonding, etc.
Recently, I have also focused on producing nanostructured ceramics.
