Prof. Krzysztof Koziol
Prof Koziol is currently Professor of Composites Engineering and Head of Enhanced Composites and Structures Centre and Enhanced Composites & Structures Centre at Cranfield. He completed PhD at University of Cambridge, Magdalene College, 2007. Koziol is a scientist, inventor, entrepreneur and mentor. He was The Royal Society Research Fellow, Pembroke College Fellow and Oppenheimer Research Fellow, based in the Department of Materials Science and Metallurgy, University of Cambridge, where he led Electric Carbon Nanomaterials Research Group. His areas of expertise are nanotechnology & energy, carbon nanotubes, graphene, synthesis of nanomaterials, design of catalysts for carbon nanotube formation, chirality control of carbon nanotubes, carbon nanotube based fibres and wires. Prof Koziol pioneered controlled synthesis approach to carbon nanotubes and graphene, developed synthetic routes for chirality control of carbon nanotubes, catalyst-free gas phase production of graphene, continuous manufacturing of highly aligned carbon nanotube based electric wires and first carbon based electrical machines (including electric motor and electrical transformer). He is founder of several companies on commercialisation of CNT and graphene. Prof Koziol working with Hub team on Fundamental Node projects on exploring properties of graphene composites and heterostructures. Prof. Krzysztof Koziol, www.kkoziol.org.
