Betime completed an undergraduate degree in Mechatronics at Deakin University, Australia. She holds a PhD in Materials Engineering from the same institution, with her thesis focused on the ‘structure and properties of epoxy nanocomposites’. After being awarded her doctorate in 2010, she was employed by the University of Leeds as a Technology Manager. Since 2014, Betime has worked as a Technical Lead at the AMRC Composite Centre.

She has expertise in non-conventional curing of composite and nanocomposite materials, with a focus on rapid manufacturing in the form of microwave heating. Alongside strong technical knowledge of composite processing, she has experience in leading large programmes of research and development, and is responsible for the portfolio of commercial projects within the centre.
