Alloy Development

Solid-State Processing



I graduated in 2021 after completing an MPhys in Physics & Astrophysics at the University of York. My master's project took a more engineering-focused path, where I developed a system of control moment gyroscopes for the attitude control of a model satellite. During my project I gained an interest in the material science and manufacturing processes involved in aerospace components, leading me to pursue an EngD with the Advanced Metallic Systems CDT.

Current Research

Development of enhanced Titanium alloys from recycled powder through the FAST-processing route for next-generation aerospace components.
