My interest are focused on, broadly conceived, materials technologies - ceramic and metals - possibilities of their manufacturing, joining, and their properties, especially those related with conditions of high temperatures and mechanical loads.
Among ceramic materials, my key interest is focused on refractory materials which are applied in various applications requiring resistance to high temperatures, chemical corrosion and mechanical loads, e.g. in ferrous and non-ferrous metallurgy or cement plants.
Refractories are specific ceramic materials. Design of high-resistant refractory, which resists the harsh operation conditions, is a great challenge which requires the application of the interdisciplinary knowledge of chemistry and physics, and often other disciplines of science and engineering solutions.
Such "a synthesis of knowledge" to create new material of unique properties gives a lot of satisfaction and motivates for the future work.
