Natural Material Innovation

Sustainable Living
 

Research

Henry's research focuses on fluid mechanics for the built environment. This ranges from the fundamental understanding of turbulent flows with buoyancy and stratification (and the mixing thereof), includes the practical application of this understanding to the human-focused ventilation of buildings and encompasses the modification of natural materials, for example, through the impregnation of wood and timber. To this end Henry co-leads the Low-Energy Ventilation Network, collaborates widely with industrial and academic partners, and maintains an active role within the Natural Materials Innovation for Sustainable Living.

New insight into the structure of building blocks of plant biomass.

6 November 2018

In a paper recently published in Plant Physiology we investigate the structure and function of one of an important component of plant biomass – galactoglucomannan (GGM). The GGM is a polysaccharide, a polymer made from multiple sugar molecules joined together. It is one of the principal components of softwood, wood from...
