I am a postdoctoral research associate in the Materials Department at Imperial College London, working under Dr Ben Britton within the EPSRC HexMat Programme Grant. My research interests include: deformation and recrystallisation of metals during processing, microstructural characterisation using thermomechanical testing and electron microscopy, and developing new methods for data analysis and acquisition in electron backscatter diffraction (EBSD).
