I am a Lecturer and EPSRC Early Career Fellow at Imperial College London working on the environmental degradation of engineering alloys. I have a particular interest in oxidation and hot corrosion of nickel and cobalt-based superalloys as well as advanced characterisation techniques such as transmission electron microscopy (TEM) and atom probe tomography (APT). I teach the 1st year undergraduate module in Materials Electrochemistry MSE102.
Current research projects: I have a long-standing research collaboration with Rolls-Royce plc, who are co-sponsoring several PhD studentships, including several that I am about to advertise. I have some collaboration projects (mostly Masters) with Knauf Insulation too. The topic will be oxidation/corrosion/coatings of various engineering alloys. If interested, please contact me.
