I joined the University of Nottingham and the Precision Manufacturing Centre in January 2010 after completing both my PhD and post doctoral research at the University of Liverpool. During my time at Liverpool my work was focused upon additive manufacture using selective laser melting and digital light projection. I later used these techniques to manufacture precision components for mass spectrometers.
My current research focuses on the use of non-traditional manufacturing methods to arrive at net shape while inducing novel and favourable material properties. I currently have a strong interest in electron beam melting, laser processing of materials and electrical discharge machining. However, I also maintain a strong interest in additive layer manufacturing. I am engaged in active collaborations with researchers in Europe, USA and Japan where I have spent time as a research fellow at the University of Tokyo.
I am particularly interested in applying my knowledge of manufacturing processes to enhance the capability of scientists outside of my discipline.
