I am currently a PhD student who works on manufacturing and welding of thermoplastic composites. My researching interests involve processing of fibre reinforced composites and joining them by developing of welding technology.

I also got 2 years’ experience in teaching sessions the composite lab where manufacturing process such as oven curing, hand layup, VARTM, thermos-stamping and post mechanical testing are introduced.
