Brief Biography

Ton Peijs' research area is in Polymer Nanotechnology. He received his PhD from Eindhoven University of Technology (The Netherlands) and joined Queen Mary in 1999. He is a visiting professor at Eindhoven University of Technology (The Netherlands) and Institute of Chemical Engineering and High Temperature Chemical Processes (ICE-HT), Patras University (Greece). His research interests cover the whole technology platform from processing and characterisation to the performance evaluation and applications of polymers and their composites. In recent years, his work has mainly focused on the utilization of nanoscale architecture in polymers and composites, the creation of high-performance fibres for advanced all-polymer composites, intelligent fibres for smart textiles, and the development of novel materials based on renewable resources.

TP is the author or co-author of over 200 papers in scientific journals and conference proceedings. He was the co-organiser and co-chairman of the 10th European Conference on Composite Materials (ECCM-10) and is the founder of the biannual International Conference Series on Eco-Composites (ECOCOMP). He is a member of the editorial board of seven leading journals in the field of materials, polymers and composites and was the conference chair for the 2008 Gordon Research Conference (GRC) on Composites. He is the recipient of the 2008 Dutch Polymer Award of Polymer Technology Netherlands (PTN) and the 2010 Swinburne Medal & Prize of the Institute of Materials, Minerals and Mining (IOM3). TP is a director of Nanoforce Technology Ltd a spin-out company, wholly-owned by QMUL devoted to nanocomposites research for exploitation by industry.
