The revolution in various sectors of human activities ranging from communication, transportation and health demands the understanding and development of new advanced materials. My research interests mainly focus on the development of the next generation of process modeling tools for advanced composite materials. I am also looking at the mechanical and physical properties and processibility of new revolutionary nanostructured composite materials also know as nanocomposites. A combination of experimental and computational techniques are utilised to reach these goals
