I am both a lecturer and researcher in textile technology and chemistry, and spent 2 years in New Zealand studying material science and nanotechnology (1999-2001). 5 years experience in textile and apparel manufacturing industry (1991-1996) before pursuing career in teaching. I have translated several technical books on textile technology and textile processing as well as some technical brochures and manuals. Early this year VDMA (German Machine Manufacturer Association) used my service as a moderator and interpreter in their textile machine symposium. I am also interested in literature, especially those with social or historical background.
