the link between structure of
macro/supra-molecular systems and their structural, functional and dynamic
Current topics :
Structure and properties of nanocomposites.
Nanofillers of interest : carbon nanotubes, halloysite clay
Properties of interest : mechanical and rheological properties;
thermal stability and fire resistance; electrical and electromagnetic
properties, metamaterial properties.
Structural composites : synergistic influence of thermoplastics
and nanofillers in high performance thermoset resins.
Influence of molecular distribution and architecture of model macro- and supramolecular systems on dynamics in the melt. Combination of rheological experimental and mesoscopic modelingapproaches. Link to adhesives and self-healing materials.
