Current Research Activities

Konstantin is a staff member in Prof. Golberg’s group at Queensland University of Technology. His main research topics is to study mechanical properties of interface boundaries between metal and ceramic phases (for example Al-BN interfaces), studying catalytic activity of BN-based nanohybrids and utilization of the nanohybrids for water splitting reactions. This research will help to design new types of ultrastrong composite materials and also materials and devices for “green” technologies.
