The Research Institute for Flexible Materials (RIFleX), under the leadership of Professor George Stylios, carries out leading research at the textile/clothing interface, for example, in methods for measurement of textile aesthetics and for fabric mechanics. In addition, computer-aided 3D modelling and visualisation techniques, linked to human body and face modelling, are being developed to simulate garment drape.
In addition to opportunities in MPhil/PhD research, the School houses a unique collection of historical textiles within the Archive Resource Centre and accommodates research related to the history of art and design.
