Cellulose: A sustainable material for tomorrow’s applications
Thursday, 19 November 2015 from 19:00 to 20:30 (GMT)
Cellulose: A sustainable material for tomorrow’s applications - Professor Steve Eichhorn
Professor Steve Eichhorn is Chair in Materials Science within the College of Engineering, Maths & Physical Sciences. He originally trained as a physicist, at Leeds, but works closely with engineers, biologists, physicists and chemists. His research focuses on the mechanical properties and interfaces in natural and sustainable materials, particularly cellulose fibres and composites. He is particularly interested in applying principles from biological structures in engineering applications - or biomimetics - for a variety of applications including composites, smart packaging, energy storage and biofunctional materials.
The lecture will start at 7:30. Tea and Coffee will be available from 7:00 for networking.
