Research Interests

Current research interests fall into the following areas:

  • Advanced functional thin film developments for marine applications.
  • Mechanical properties and microstructure characterisation of thermally sprayed coatings, such as thermal barriers coatings (TBCs) for gas turbine engine applications.
  • High temperature creep behaviour and failure mechanism investigation of thermal barrier coatings by means of small punch creep test.
  • Electron backscatter diffraction (EBSD) measurements of induced strain during small specimen creep tests.
  • Element diffusion and phase evolution modelling of multi-phase alloys during welding and heat treatment.
