Dr Sutcliffe's research interests include:
- Soft biological tissues (e.g. brain and artery)
- Composite materials (e.g. impact, design, wind turbine applications)
- Tribology (e.g. composites forming, tyre wear)
- Mechanical behaviour of materials
Energy, transport and urban infrastructure
Lightweight lorries and tyre friction as part of the Centre for Sustainable Road Freight. Composites use in various applications, e.g. cars, wind turbines.
Various projects in biomechanics, generally in collaboration with colleagues at Addenbrooke’s Hospital. Theme leader.
