Personal profile

Personal Statement

My research interests are focused on the interactions of solid particle erosion and wear of materials in corrosive environments, with specific emphasis on the development of mapping techniques for understanding the mechanisms of materials loss. These include the marine renewable engineering, bio-medical and oil & gas fields. I head up the Tribology Research Group in the Department which has attracted over £2m of research funding since 2016.  I am a Fellow of the Institute of Physics (CPhys, FInsP), of the Institute of Materials, Mining and Minerals (FIMMM) and the Institution of Engineers of Ireland (CEng, FIEI).

I have led the EPSRC funded ReC-ASM (£1.1m) project which aims to optimize materials in marine and tidal energy conversion and currently lead a group of 15 PhD and MEng researchers including 3 Research Associates.  

My group has authored approximately 200 publications (135 journal articles) and has a H index of 42.

Our research findings have been presented at over 70 international/national conferences.

I lead the International Network on Tribo-Corrosion (TrICorr-Net) and sit on several editorial boards including Tribology International.

Our group has founded the first journal in Tribo-Corrosion of which I am Editor-in-Chief, Journal of Bio- and Tribo-Corrosion (Springer).

I was Overseas Chair for Tribo-Corrosion V, Hyderabad, India, December 2016.
