Field: High performance material

Main Research: Aluminium Extrusions for Automotive Safety Parts


My research is focussed on the microstructural development of Al wrought alloys along the production process chain and how the microstructure affects the processability and the final properties of the product (e.g., crash properties of automotive parts).
