Prof Cees Bastiaansen
BSc, PhD

Visiting Professor of Materials

Cees Bastiaansen is part-time professor with the Materials Division. His research centers around the processing and structure-property relationships of polymers - with an emphasis on aligned, oriented systems, their functional properties and devices. His current research is mainly in polymers for sensors, actuators, smart windows and high performance composites. Cees collaborates with a large number of industrial partners through various multi-partner projects, including a number of EU, UK and NL government funded projects. Cees has been active in polymers in an industrial and an academic environment for over 30 years. He is the author or co-author of more than 300 peer reviewed …

Dr Botto

Dr Lorenzo Botto

Visiting Reader in Fluid Mechanics (primary affiliation: Process & Energy Dept., TU Delft, Netherlands)

I am the leader of the Fluids, Particles and Interfaces Group ( I am interested in fluid mechanics and transport phenomena, with particular focus on topics at the interface between classical fluid dynamics and materials science. My group uses simulations and theory, often corroborated by experimental results, to uncover fundamental engineering principles that can be applied to practical problems, in areas such as advanced materials, bioengineering, and energy engineering. Recurring topics of research in the group are the dynamics of particulate materials (suspensions, emulsions, powders, etc.) and the mechanics of soft interfaces. I lead the "Fluid Mechanics …
Dr Carpi

Dr Federico Carpi

Visiting Professor in Biomedical Engineering and Biomaterials

The main research focus is on biomedical & bioinspired mechatronic devices made of soft smart materials. Core activities deal with the development of innovative devices based on electromechanically active polymer transducers (EAPs) and, in particular, dielectric elastomer (DE) transducers. DE actuators exhibit a mechanical response to an electrical stimulus, while offering, at the same time, light weight, mechanical compliance, compact size, simple structure, low power consumption, acoustically silent operation, and low cost. We study DE transducers as 'artificial muscle materials' for new electromechanical transduction technologies to enable applications not feasible or even imaginable with other technologies.

Visiting Professor in Biomedical Engineering & Biomaterials

Our team strives to develop innovative technologies and high impact research (Science 2008, Nature Materials 2010, Nature Chemistry 2015) to generate creative technologies and solutions for a variety of bioengineering applications. We use highly interdisciplinary approaches that integrate engineering, materials science, chemistry, nanotechnology, biology, and medicine to develop materials and devices that are hierarchical, biomimetic, offer spatio-temporal control, adaptability, tuneability, self-healing, and functionality. Current research in our lab includes the development of in vitro biomimetic environments, dynamic and directed self-assembling systems, molecular printing within 3D environments, and molecularly-designed bioactive implants for applications such as tissue engineering, regenerative medicine, drug screening.
