20th World Congress on Materials Science and Engineering
Angelo La Rosa
London South Bank University, United Kingdom
Angelo La Rosa is pursuing his PhD in the School of Engineering at London South Bank University. Currently his research studies include in-depth comprehension of the mechanisms involved to graft the surface of the silica particles with tailored silanes. His PhD work is involved in Work Package 2 (WP2) of the EIROS European project which aims to fabricate advanced materials having anti-erosion and anti-icing properties through the incorporation of super hydrophobic silica particles as additive material into available-in-the-market-materials (epoxy resins or paints). The work is carried out into the National Structural Integrity Research Centre, a state-of-the-art postgraduate engineering facility established and managed by structural integrity specialist TWI.
