A/Prof. Andrzej CalkaAndrzej Calka is Associate Professor of Materials Science and Engineering at School of Mechanical Materials and Mechatronics, University of Wollongong in Australia. He received his MSc (1972) and PhD (1978) from Warsaw University of Technology. His main research interests are Planar Flow Casting, Mechano-Chemical Synthesis and Plasma Materials ProcessingHe has published 177 publications which attracted 3889 citations [ISI Web of Knowledge; Science Citation Index Expanded] over the period 1974-2018. His publication in Nature (A.Calka and D.Wexler; Nature, vol.419, 2002, pp.147-151) sparked international interest in the new materials processing technology –Electric Discharge Assisted Mechanical Milling which currently is his major field of research. His h-index is 36. He delivers 36 invited and keynote lectures at major international conferences. He is Associate editor of Advanced Powder Technology journal and member of many steering committees.He is a member of the Engineering Materials Institute and Group Leader of the Special Materials and Advanced Research and Technology Group at the University of WollongongHe is a regular referee for 11 international journals and he has been invited as a reviewer of grant applications of many research institutions.He supervised 27 undergraduate, PhD and Master Degree students.


Many functional materials are traditionally synthesized by slow reaction processes that are energy and time consuming. In the present world there is strong demand on development of modern materials and materials processing... [ view full abstract ]
