Research Interests

  • Manufacturing technologies and approaches for a sustainable future
  • Additive manufacturing (materials, processes, design and application)
  • Electrical discharge machining, electrolyte jet machining, electron beam and laser processes
  • Stochastics in engineering design and manufacture
  • Machine design and build
  • Manufacturing for high value and high integrity applications (aerospace, biomedical, tool and nuclear)

Current Research Questions

  • How can digital twins of additive manufacturing components be gathered and used to qualify components?
  • Can stochastic design tools be used to create superior engineering components by additive manufacturing?
  • What is the best method to produce conformal, high integrity functionally graded components?
  • How can human cognitive design limits be overcome to exploit fully the freedoms of additive manufacturing?
  • How can advanced manufacturing technologies be used secure a sustainable energy future?
  • What is the smallest volume of material that can be removed in a subtractive process under ambient conditions?
  • How can crystallographic ‘characteristics’ be evaluated on the factory floor?
