My professional life has been devoted to the study of different aspects of materials science and metal-conversion processes, with specific focus on industry-needs. At present I am the Leader of the Forging Team in Advance Forming Research Centre, University of Strathclyde.
I graduated in ‘78 with an MSc degree in Mechanical Engineering (Metallurgy) from Technical University of Warsaw. My early professional experience was in metallurgical analyses of microstructural and mechanical properties of iron-based alloys, non-ferrous alloys and high temperature superconductors. Subsequently, I specialised in x-ray analysis of polycrystalline materials, solid-state phase transformations and measurements of residual stresses. Since moving to the UK in early nineties I have been mainly involved in research and development of manufacturing technologies for the metal-conversion industries. I work in several trans-European research projects. This provided me with valuable experience in design of tools, processes and machinery. While employed in these research projects, I submitted my thesis in 2003 for which I was awarded a PhD in Manufacturing Engineering from Strathclyde University.
Since 2009 I have been employed as a Senior Research Fellow at the Advance Forming Research Centre, Strathclyde University. I have developed forging capability and activates at the AFRC. I have played a major role in the specification, procurement and commissioning of the forging and heating equipment currently available at the AFRC. I have been a Project Lead of a number of forging and forging related projects the outcome of which has been reported in 21 reports. Cooperation and visits to the industrial partners deepened my knowledge of forging processes, manufacturing systems and increased my understanding of industry needs.
I am an author of 29 journal and conference papers, co-author of 16 reports for EU projects and author of 21 confidential reports for AFRC. My research has demanded interdisciplinary expertise and skills that include design, dynamic behaviour of bodies, mechanics, elasticity and plasticity of materials, thermodynamics, electrical engineering, measuring techniques, control, instrumentation and data acquisition. I have also extensive experience in numerical analysis of metal forming processes using codes such as ABAQUS, QForm and Deform.
