I am supported by the EU as part of a Marie Curie Initial Training Network “SHeMat” in a collaborative project between chemistry and aerospace engineering. My PhD is supervised by Prof. Ian Bond (ACCIS) and Prof, Duncan Wass (School of Chemistry).
The project I am working on aims to develop novel chemistries for application in capsule-based self-healing Fibre Reinforced Polymers. I am currently working on optimisation of the microencapsulation procedure of epoxy monomers and characterising properties of obtained capsules.
