Wendy Jansen van Vuuren

PositionLecturer
DepartmentDepartment of Oral Rehabilitation
Research summaryDental biomaterials

Research

My research interests lie in the field of mechanical properties and strength testing of dental bio-materials, with a special focus on ceramics and composite materials. My most recent work focuses on fractured ceramics and the conditions leading up to those fractures.
