I specialise in understanding deformation at the small scale. My work focusses on understanding materials for power plant applications including fission, fusion and aerospace applications.
My research interests include techniques such as electron backscatter diffraction and digital image correlation, as well as the behaviour of hexagonal and cubic metals (e.g. Zr, Ti, Cu, Fe).
I joined the Department of Materials as a Nuclear Metallurgy Fellow in 2012. Previously I worked in the Department of Materials at the University of Oxford researching materials for fission and fusion power. My DPhil concerned the deformation behaviour of titanium alloys for aerospace applications and was completed in 2010 in Oxford.
