Mr Lourens Blok


“Scientists study the world as it is, engineers create the world that never has been.”
-Theodore von Kármán (1881-1963)

As an engineering researcher, I enjoy the interaction between academic research and industrial applications. My expertise lies in lightweight aerospace structures and materials, with a focus on fibre polymer materials. 

Currently working on the High Performance Discontinuous Fibre (HiPerDiF) project at the University of Bristol. It allows for re-use of carbon fibres in high performance applications through multiple recycling loops.
