Itziar Iraola Arregui

Postdoctoral Fellow at Stellenbosch University REDISA waste tyres research programme, Stellenbosch University

Since I finished my studies in polymeric materials, I have been working on two branches of materials science.
On one hand, I focused on macromolecules: sintering and copolymerization of chiral polymers first and the study of various coupling agents in PP-fly ash system later.
On the other hand, currently I am working in the field of powder metallurgy. I started characterizing diamond segments and now I am studying the computer design of highly alloyed high speed steels.
This training and experience has led me to have a fairly extensive knowledge of materials science as well as the handling techniques and equipment used for it.
I am passionate about science and knowledge in general.
