Profile

Carl has completed a Bachelor’s degree in Industrial Physics, a Masters degree in Material Science and Engineering from Tampere University of Technology Finland and a second master’s degree in Mechanical Engineering from Lappeenranta University of Technology Finland. His PhD research was on spark plasma sintering (SPS) synthesis and tribological behaviour of metalloceramics (MAX phases and associated MAX phase composites) and TiC-particulate/SiC-matrix ceramic composite. His current position at the Royce institute is to establish key research competence and operations in tribology. This involves high spatial resolution surface examinations using atomic force microscopy and scanning electron microscopy.
