Prof Ian Bond

Head of the Department of Aerospace Engineering

Prof. Bond is currently the Head of the Department of Aerospace Engineering.

His research interests are to develop, characterise and optimise a variety of innovative and ingenious approaches which provide functionality to fibre reinforced polymer composite materials and take them beyond their structural role. This includes bio-inspired and biomimetic approaches.

Functionalities such as self-healing, electromagnetic response, and shape change (morphing) within fibre reinforced composites are currently being developed, alongside research into creating novel hierarchical architectures and improving damage tolerance via innovative means.

His teaching includes various aspects of structures and materials, aircraft operations and supervision of a group design and individual research projects. He also has extensive teaching and PhD supervision duties.

Prof. Bond, (1995, Ph.D. in Materials Science; 1991, B.Sc. in Materials Science) is a recognised expert on multifunctional composites; including self-healing, adaptive materials, damage tolerance and bioinspiration/biomimetics. Since 1997, he has published more than 100 peer-reviewed papers on these subjects, given over 30 keynote, plenary or invited lectures, and has graduated 14 Ph.D. and M.Sc. students.
