Ing. Pavla Těšinová Ph.D. studied textile material engineering at the Faculty of Textile Engineering, Technical University of Liberec with specialisation in textile reinforced composites and engineering pedagogy at the same University. She followed with Dissertation on the multi-scale modelling of mechanical properties of woven composites in Liberec where she cooperated on various research projects on textile structure not only for composite usage. The dissertation was defended in November 2008. Since that, she is a postdoc and a lecturer at the Department of Textile Evaluation, Faculty of Textile Engineering at Technical University of Liberec. She is a co-ordinator of the short EU mobility programme for students. Her main research interests include the mechanical properties of textiles (fibres, yarns, fabrics and composites), testing and modelling of mechanical properties of various structures of textile materials, knowledge of textile goods (technical textiles and smart textiles), maintenance of textiles and lifetime of textiles.
