Summary

Jessica graduated from Imperial College London with a MEng in Aerospace Materials in 2020 (First Class Honours). Her final year research project was titled 'Low temperature salt corrosion in single crystal nickel superalloys', in collaboration with Rolls-Royce plc under the supervision of Dr Stella Pedrazzini.

In October 2020, Jessica began her PhD in the Department of Materials studying corrosion of additively manufactured (AM) Ti alloys for orthopaedic implants. Her research focuses on AM stochastic lattices and the corrosion behaviour of AM Ti alloys under exposure to body temperature, body fluid environment and mechanical loading, using characterisation techniques such as focussed ion beam - scanning electron microscopy (FIB-SEM) and atom probe tomography (APT). Jessica is working in collaboration with Alloyed Ltd, supervised by Dr Stella Pedrazzini, Dr Minh-son Pham, Dr Enrique Alabort and Dr Daniel Barba. She is also a member of the Centre of Doctoral Training in Advanced Characterisation of Materials (CDT-ACM).

Jessica is passionate in STEM outreach and is an active Discover Materials Ambassador, as well as an Imperial College Student Ambassador and Imperial Materials Outreach Demonstrator. She is an active Graduate Teaching Assistant (GTA) in the Department of Materials and was awarded Associate Fellow of the Higher Education Academy (AFHEA) in 2022.
