Areas of Research/Expertise 

Theoretical knowledge and practical skills in the areas of bulk metallic materials, intermetallics, ceramics and surface treatments, from the viewpoint of fabrication/manufacturing technology, and evaluation of its physical, chemical and mechanical properties by the methods specific and/or commonly used in materials engineering. Current research focused on high temperature structural materials, high temperature coatings, lightweight non-ferrous alloys, and functional materials for specific purposes, such as: thermoelectrics, magnetoelectrics, materials for physiosorption, materials for chemisorption, biodegradable materials, etc.
