The research activities of are focused on multi-scale structured designs
and processing of high-temperature structured ceramic and
composites. Especially ternary carbide, nitride and oxide
ceramics that has a unique combination of properties including
damage tolerance, easy machinability, resistance to
high-temperature oxidation and thermal shock, ,high strength and
modulus, good electrical and thermal conductivity. We are
interested in understanding the effect of electric structure,
crystal and microstructures on the properties of these
materials, developing low-cost novel methods for the preparation
of bulk and low-dimensioned (powders and thin film) materials.
Investigating the fatigue behavior under static, dynamic and
cyclic load, as well as the thermal/chemical stability of
ceramic and composites.
