My research interests lie in the area of energy-efficient and safe vehicles (EESVs) including: lightweight materials and structures, advanced composite materials, graphene related materials, multi-functional materials, modelling and design, energy conversion and storage systems and impact and crashworthiness analysis. My work outcomes are recognised both nationally and internationally as evident from over 90 plenary lectures, invited talks, keynotes and presentations; over 150 peer-reviewed research papers and patents. Most recently, I have published the book: A. Elmarakbi (2013) Ã¢â‚¬Å“Advanced Composite Materials for Automotive Applications: Structural Integrity and CrashworthinessÃ¢â‚¬Â, Wiley, UK.
Prof. Gianaurelio Cuniberti holds since 2007 the Chair of Materials Science and Nanotechnology at the Dresden University of Technology. He leads the Nanobiomaterials Department of the Max Bergmann Center of Biomaterials Dresden and is the founding director of the Dresden Center for Computational Materials Science (DCCMS). He studied Physics at the University of Genoa and at the University of Hamburg and was visiting scientist at MIT and the Max Planck Institute for the Physics of Complex Systems Dresden. From 2003 to 2007 he was at the head of a Volkswagen Foundation Junior Research Group at the University of Regensburg. Prof. Cuniberti has made lasting contributions to a wide range of areas from quantum dots, nanowires and nanotubes to biosystems, addressing transport phenomena, structural stability with important contributions to the theory and modeling of the electronic and structural properties of bottom up nanoscale materials. His activity addresses four main lines: (i) molecular and organic electronics, (ii) bionanotechnology, (iii) nanostructures, (iv) methods development. His research activity is internationally recognized in more than 200 scientific papers to date. He initiated and organized numerous workshops, and school-conferences and took part in international research training networks, offering extensive opportunities for young scientists. He has given plenary and invited talks at numerous international meetings. He received several talent scholarships and in 2001 the Max Planck Society Schloessmann award fellowship. He is distinguished visiting Distinguished Professor at the Division of IT Convergence Engineering of POSTECH, the Pohang University of Science and Technology and Adjunct Professor for the Department of Chemistry at the University of Alabama.
