Profile

I am an innovative technology specialist with significant experience in the industrial development and application of specialised coatings materials and corrosion mitigation methods. I have written over 100 scientific papers (Journal papers conference proceedings book chapters and technical articles) in the field of coatings advanced materials and corrosion. I have developed methodologies materials and test protocols that are currently being adopted by Industry. I joined the University of Leicester in 2018 after a decade in Industry-focused research at TWI. I was a Gates Scholar at the University of Cambridge and have a PhD in Materials Science. I sit in several International Committees (European Federation of Corrosion and NACE). I am also a member (Judge) of the Journal of Thermal Spray Technology (JTST) best paper award committee. I am a Chartered Engineer (CEng) in the UK a Life Fellow of the Cambridge Philosophical Society and a fellow of the Institute of Materials Minerals and Mining (FIMMM) UK.

Research

"I specialise in industrial development and application of coatings materials and corrosion mitigation methods. I look at the effect of coatings processing on their microstructure and their performance in service environments. I have worked on several InnovateUK and EU-funded projects. Some recent projects where I am the PI at the University of Leicester are given below: • FORGE (EU H2020): Development of novel and cost-effective coatings for high-energy processing applications (2020-2024) • BattMan3D (InnovateUK): Electric Vehicle Battery Manufacturing with Novel Multi-Material 3D Printer (2020-2022) • GEOHEX (EU H2020): Advanced material for cost-efficient and enhanced heat exchange performance for geothermal application (2019-2022) "

Supervision

I have strong research management skills. I have supervised several MSc and PhD students some in collaboration with other UK universities such as Coventry Brunel Cambridge Birmingham etc. I am currently leading the development and execution of long-term research strategy for the Materials Innovation Centre. The core areas of research are: • Thermal and cold spray coatings • Materials development characterisation and performance evaluation • Electrochemistry and Corrosion • Carbon Capture Utilisation and Storage "

Teaching

I am currently supervising several PhD students.
