Cellulose: A sustainable material for tomorrow’s applications
Thursday Nov 19, 2015 at 19:30
Professor Steve Eichhorn is Chair in Materials Science at Exeter Ubiversity. He originally trained as a physicist, at Leeds and now 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 to engineering applications—or biomimetics—for a variety of applications including composites, smart packaging, energy storage and biofunctional materials.
The talk will be followed by a discussion and buffet.
