Research focus

The main research interest is in materials science in the field of advanced ceramics and composites. The research covers processing, characterisation and evaluation of technical ceramics, typically alumina and zirconia in the oxides and carbon, carbides, nitrides, borides on the non-oxide side. Particular expertise exists in the chemical property evaluation (oxidation and corrosion). Other research goals are phase relations, mechanical properties and bionics of biomaterials and ceramics.
