Veronika is a leading expert in the field of clothing comfort and biomimetic textiles, with a body of published work on the subject. She is a regular presenter at international conferences.

She has also project managed an e-learning resource specialising in textile technology.

Veronika has worked in the fashion sector since 1999 as a studio manager and freelance textile designer, before migrating to R&D. In 2004 she began as a lecturer in textile technology and design development at the London College of Fashion while studying for her doctorate in biomimetic textiles at the University of Bath’s mechanical engineering department.

Organised by World Textile Information Network (WTiN), the inaugural ITMA Future Materials Awards celebrated innovation in the textile sector and recognised the essential work of the many businesses that support the industry. (GK)
