The group develops fundamental knowledge in suspension rheology, colloid and surface chemistry in order to improve processing of ceramics and minerals.
Near net shaping via colloidal processing, controlled porous structures, 3D printing and ultra-high temperature ceramics.
New responsive polymer reagents, flocculation, solid-liquid separation, flotation and dry processing.
Mechanics and Modelling
Fracture of wet particulate materials, metal oxide surface chemistry, microstructure-property relationships modelling.
