Key Memberships
Full Member of Research Centre: Materials & Physics Research Centre
From October 2009 to August 2015.
Profile Summary
  • various high-temperature/hard ceramic and composite materials, including reinforced and chemically bonded ceramics;
  • synthesis and nanotechnology of carbon and inorganic compounds (carbides, oxides, nitrides, carbonitrides, sialons, borides, silicides, intermetallics), including hydrogen/energy storage materials and micro-, meso-porous media (coatings, membranes);
  • phenomenological modeling and kinetics analysis in solid-state chemistry;
  • high-temperature thermo-chemical and physico-mechanical processes;
  • theory and practice of processing in ceramics technology and powder metallurgy, including application of polymer and metal-organic precursors;
  • design of technological equipment for elevated, high and ultra-high temperatures;
  • microstructure (texture) – property (characteristics) relations and models in materials engineering;
  • behaviour of composite materials in extreme environment (high thermal stresses, chemically active media), including gas corrosion, erosion, wear and ablation at elevated, high and ultra-high temperatures;
  • design, selection and application of various types of composites in aerospace technology, nuclear engineering, metallurgy and machinery...
