Minh-Son (Son) Pham is an academic in the department of Materials: Materials-academic staff list . Previously, he was a Research Associate at Carnegie Mellon University from Jan. 2013 to Dec. 2015. He was also a Guest Researcher at National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) from 2013-2015. He obtained a Doctor of Science degree from the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology (ETH) Zurich in 2013 with distinction (the ETH Medal 2013 for excellent intellectual merit).

He currently leads a research group in Novel Manufacturing of Metals and Alloys. His research focuses on alloy design and novel lattice design by/for additive manufacturing, on microstructures and metal forming of lightweight metals and alloys in automobile, aerospace and power plants.

More detail about his research, please visit:  Pham personal webpage

Openings: Two funded PhD studentships are currently available for talented and motivated candidates. Detailed information: . Note: Funds are available only for UK/EU students, overseas students need to secure their own financial support.

Prospective students/postdocs who want to work with him in additive manufacturing, metal forming, microstructures, constitutive modelling and mechanical performance, please do not hesitate to contact him at  

Teaching: He lectures “MSE 203 Mechanical Behaviour: Fracture of Materials” and MSE204-Microstructures.
