"My research aims to develop a moisture transport measurement technique that is applicable to a wide range of textiles, with a particular focus on socks. Socks are an area of interest because they are widely worn, are often unsuitable for testing with other test methods, and pose many challenges in testing to simulate actual wear conditions".
