Marc in het Panhuis

Professor of Materials Science, University of Wollongong

I have expertise in development of new materials (e.g. hydrogel materials) and Additive Manufacturing (i.e. 3D and 4D printing) with a focus on applications in bio-tissue engineering, edible electronics, soft robotics and surfing (fins and surfboards).
