Metallurgy

A unique interdisciplinary approach to research in physical and process metallurgy is used. The major focus is to develop physical understanding, combined with a unique hybrid methodology for prediction of microstructure as a function of process condition.

  • Professor Eric Palmiere - Professor of Metallurgy, research involves the microstructural evolution, and the subsequent development of mechanical properties, during the thermomechanical processing of both ferrous and nonferrous alloys.
  • Professor Mark Rainforth - Professor of Materials Science and Engineering, research interests are on the deformation of metals, tribology and the characterisation of metals and ceramics at high spatial resolution.
  • Professor Iain Todd - Professor of Metallurgy, research interests include the study of both structural and functional material properties in structures where microstructural and physical property length scales are comparable.
  • Professor Panos Tsakiropoulos - Professor of Metallurgy and POSCO Chair in Iron and Steel Technology, research centres on the design of ferrous and non-ferrous alloys and composites for the energy, transport and aerospace industries via process-microstructure-property studies.
  • Professor Brad Wynne - Professor of Metallurgy, research interests focus on the thermomechanical processing of metals and alloys.
  • Dr Russell Goodall - Reader in Metallurgy, research interests are in alloy design and development, in particular for High Entropy Alloys, and the processing and properties of porous metals.
  • Dr Martin Jackson - Senior Lecturer in Metallurgy. His research centres on the effect of solid state processes from upstream extraction technologies through to downstream finishing processes on microstructural evolution and mechanical properties in light alloys, and in particular Ti alloys.
  • Dr Richard Thackray - Lecturer in Steel Making, main research interests are in continuous casting of steel, effect of secondary steelmaking on cleanness of steel, and studies on oxide/refractory interactions in steelmaking.
