Research in the The Multifunctional Materials & Composites (MMC) Laboratory at the Department of Engineering Science, University of Oxford

Our Research

  • Multifunctional materials including metal-organic frameworks (MOFs), hybrid gels, polymers etc
  • Nanocomposites — processing, characterisation and engineering novel applications
  • Nano- and micro-mechanics of 2D materials, such as exfoliated nanosheets, thin films, and coatings
  • Highly porous network materials, including metallic fibres and foams
  • Computational modelling and theoretical simulations: quantum mechanical simulations (DFT) and finite-element modelling
  • In-situ studies at large national science facilities — synchrotron light source and neutron spectroscopy
