The research group of Lightweight Design for Manufacturing focuses on real industrial needs of designing and manufacturing high-performance and lightweight vehicle structures amid the global campaign of reducing carbon emissions.
My main research focus in the group are: development of innovative, energy-efficient manufacturing processes for lightweight structures, with a particular focus on stamp forming high-strength, complex-shaped panel components at elevated temperatures, using continuous Fibre Reinforced Thermoplastics; fundamental research on materials testing and modelling under complicated forming conditions.
