Textile/clothing interface, bringing fabric attributes in relation to garment machinery and garment design, e.g.: intelligent sewing environments; automated measurement systems; laser pucker; dynamic sewing penetration force measurement.
Textile/garment aesthetics, to define, predict and engineer superior fabrics and garments: predicting handle and drape with fabric properties incorporating perception; fabric and dynamic drape measurement system.
3D cloth drape with the creation of realistic 3D simulation and visualisation of garments worn by artificial humans who are digitally cloned and seen to perform “virtual wearer trials”;
In 1999 I joined the School of Textiles and Design as Professor of Textiles and I’m currently Director of TechniTex and the Faraday Partnership in Technical Textiles. I have always been interested in the interface between textiles and clothing from a number of aspects and have centered the majority of my research around this area, bringing in sensors, control engineering and machine design.
