Joseph N. Grima is a Full Professor at the University of Malta within the Faculty of Science (Department of Chemistry and Metamaterials Unit). His academic work focuses on mechanical metamaterials from the perspective of geometry-function relationships. He leads a research group working on materials and structures exhibiting negative properties such as negative Poisson’s ratios (auxetic), negative thermal expansion and negative compressibility. The group has hosted a number of international conferences and workshops and coedited various international journal special issues on these novel systems. In addition to this, Professor Grima has a keen interest in biomechanics with a particular focus on rowing, a sport which he practices. He has published more than 150 ISI-cited journal publications.
