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.
