The overall focus of his research group programme is on bioinspired materials and biomimetics. “In short, we are taking inspiration from living organisms that produce unique structures, with properties that are unmatched in synthetic materials. Many of our inspirations come from marine organisms, such as squids, sea cucumbers, or the mantis shrimps,” he says.The overall focus of his research group programme is on bioinspired materials and biomimetics. “In short, we are taking inspiration from living organisms that produce unique structures, with properties that are unmatched in synthetic materials.
