Projects per year
I am Director of Knowledge Exchange located within the DMEM Department, University of Strathclyde. I am Chair of the Technical Board of the Advanced Forming Research Centre and as such am responsible for the delivery of the £1.8m pa core research programme. I am also Principal Investigator for a range of CR&D projects collectively worth about £3m. My background consists of a mixture of industrial and commercial research with particular areas of expertise around metallurgy and manufacturing.
I have worked in both industrial (Doncasters Forgemasters, Mettis Aerospace) and commercial (QinetiQ) research as well as previously spending time in academia at the Interdisciplinary Research Centre (IRC) in High Performance Materials at the University of Birmingham. I joined the University of Strathclyde in 2010.
My research interests focus on the interaction of materials processing conditions, microstructure and final properties. To support this I am a specialist in materials characterisation and work extensively with process modelling.
