The main focus of the Hinestroza Research Group is to explore the interface between the technologically established and mature field of textile science and the emerging and revolutionary field of nanoscale science. The textile industry was the first beneficiary of the scientific developments from the 18th century's industrial revolution while nanoscale science and nanotechnology emerged at the end of the 21st century.
