Biomimetics and Biomimicry in Engineering

Research Interests

Dr Torres-Sanchez’s interest in the manufacture of porous materials whose internal architecture can be tailored to meet specific requirements (i.e. structural and biomimetic materials) has driven the development of a novel technique in the adjustment of cellular geometry of solid polymeric foams via controlled ultrasonic irradiation.

Other research interests include:

  • Added functionality in materials and structures
  • Acoustic applications for the manipulation and manufacture of materials
  • Materials and lightweight structures
  • Medical and Orthopaedic applications and devices
  • Bioengineering and scaffolds for Medical applications
  • Embedded intelligence in products, systems and environments
  • Architecture and design; intelligent buildings
  • Elimination and control of hazardous substances
  • Packaging and sacrificial structures
  • Use of renewable, biodegradable materials
  • Biologically inspired decision-making, optimisation strategies
