Key words

An expert in the field of modelling and design of structure and properties of metallic and ceramic materials.

Academic research conducted

  • Investigation of the strengthening mechanisms of Ti and its alloys – ab initio modelling of structure and properties of crystalline defects existing in pure and alloyed Ti. Fabrication (arc melting) and tests of new alloys including microstructure and chemical/phase composition (SEM, EDS, EBSD, EDS, XRD, DSC and Resistivity measurements);
  • Studies of the deformation and strengthening mechanisms of metastable (martensitic) Ti alloys obtained through the 3D printing techniques – ab initio modelling of the deformation processes of martensite laths and activity of glide/twining deformation modes. Experimental analysis of structure of fabricated materials (SEM, TEM, EBSD, EDS, XRD);
  • Laser surface treatment aimed at improving the adhesion of implantable elements. Investigation of the surface structure and substrate of implants after surface functionalisation;
  • Designing of the new, lightweight and elastically homogeneous structural materials with increased plasticity and high-cycle wear resistance. Ab initio modeling of the stability of metastable metallic systems and optimization of their composition towards a homogeneous elastic response to a given load. Experimental work involving the production of new alloys and measurement of their mechanical properties and structure;
  • Designing of a next-gen. light Ti alloys for high temperature applications. Ab initio modeling of the influence of alloying elements on the activity of creep mechanisms. Empirical production and testing of the developed systems.
