I am a Materials Engineer, currently doing my PhD studies in Building Materials. I work with assessment and evaluation of mechanochemistry to process alternative sources for sustainable building materials. I am also one of the Building Materials course teachers, responsible for mechanical properties of building materials, life cycle assessment and other building materials as e.g. polymers.
