My research has two strands:
1 Material sciences and technologies - the way structure, function, and behaviour of textiles/ products can be engineered by selecting and manipulating fibres, yarns, fabrics, finishes, and assemblies.
2 Textiles, human health, safety, performance and well-being
- the intimate contact humans have with textiles and fibres: what are the physical and physiological effects, and how can these be used to enhance human performance, health, and well-being?
