Materials Science and Engineering

Our group creates new biopolymer nanocomposite materials from plant cells. We develop processing methods and study structure-property relationships on the produced biodegradable nanocomposites. We characterize the plant cell structure and biomechanics and incorporate the findings in our processing methods. We work also with synthetic hierarchical polymer nanocomposites and investigate the infulence of nanoconfinement effecrs on the structure and mechanical properties of the fabricated composites.
