Projects per year
I am a Lecturer in several disciplines including Advanced materials, Integrating studies, and Production techniques, as well as researcher in Material Science and Engineering. I supervise undergraduate, postgraduate students, as well as postgraduate dissertation projects. I have frequently been presenting my research in national and international conferences and exposed my research to other researchers from across the world. I am a member of the Institution of Mechanical Engineers; registered by the Engineering Council as Chartered Engineer (CEng). My research is very well established and recognised among the scientists in this field.
I have M.Sc. (Hons) and B.Sc. (Hons) in Materials Science and Engineering, and PhD in Solid State Physics. I am delivering lectures in the Department of Design, Manufacturing and Engineering Management (DMEM) at the University of Strathclyde. Previously, I worked at the Institute for Metals Superplasticity Problems (IMSP) in Russia, Ibaraki University in Japan, and the Advanced Forming Research Centre (AFRC) at the University of Strathclyde in UK. I represented the AFRC and University of Strathclyde in High Value Manufacturing Catapult’s cross centre forum on Additive Manufacturing. My international experiences and background in materials science and engineering combined with a strong interest in materials processing provide me with key qualifications to lead and contribute to a wide spectrum of research projects in materials science and engineering. I have excellent experience and expertise in advanced materials characterisation techniques, and materials thermo-mechanical behaviours. My research portfolio is very well established and recognised internationally. I have been successful in winning and completing several research grant proposals, both nationally and internationally. I had been awarded international grant supported by German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD), several grants funded by Russian Funding for Fundamental Research. I have a significant number of journal papers (89 in total, as well as a book) published in high impact factor journals that are well cited, as well as authored several industrial reports and technical notes. I have been very active in dissemination of my research output through publications and participation in national and international conferences. According to the Scopus, I have citation index h~9. Also, some of my research outputs during my work as an Assistant Professor at Ibaraki University (Japan) were focused on microstructural observations of electrodeposited nano-scale wires and thin films. My previous position as a Research Associate at the AFRC, University of Strathclyde, was in support of high value industrial research and development, focused on advanced materials characterisation across a number of sectors. I have led research and knowledge exchange programmes focused on developing the Centre’s knowledge base on materials behaviour, during forging, forming and metal processing. I was involved in setting protocols for materials research and ensuring compliance. I had a key role in developing and delivering new research and knowledge exchange strategies of International significance, including identifying and obtaining sources of significant funding as well as disseminating results through regular reports and publication in high quality journals.
My research interests include severe plastic deformation (SPD), cryogenic deformation, abnormal grain growth, electron backscattering diffraction (EBSD), ultra fine-grained (UFG) materials, nanocrystalline materials, deformation-induced boundaries (DIBs), structure transformations in pure copper, thin films, electrodeposition, damascene copper wires, additive manufacturing.
