Bioinspired Materials: biological and biomimetic fibrous structures with enhanced adhesion

Research Interests: Dry attachment systems of arthropods, Mechanical properties, Mechanoreceptors in arthropods and Mechanical characterization of carbon nanotube arrays.The main topic of the presentation was Dry (glue-free) adhesion of fibrous systems:

- Dry adhesion of spider attachment hairs

- Vertically arranged carbon nanotubes (VACNTs)

- Cellulose nanofibers (CNFs) of plant seeds
