Ian M. Reaney joined the Department of Materials Science and Engineering in 1994, as a PDRA, then as a Lecturer from 1995 followed by promotion to a personal chair in 2007, followed by becoming the Dyson Chair in Ceramics in 2016. He attained his PhD from the University of Manchester in 1989 and worked as post-doctoral researcher at the University of Essex before joining the group of Professor Setter at the Laboratoire de Ceramique, Ecole Polytechnique Federale de Lausanne in Switzerland in 1991. He is the European site director for the NSF funded Centre for Dielectrics and Piezoelectrics and the Director of Research and Innovation in MSE.
The main theme of Prof. Reaney's research is the study of structure/microstructure property relations in electroceramics. He he has produced many key texts on microwave dielectrics and piezoelectrics and is currently developing lead free ceramics for actuators and sensors and researching materials for 5G applications. His group focuses on the development of sustainable functional ceramics and as part of this initiative he has published several papers on their comparative life cycle assessment. He is also developing ultra-low sintering technologies for ceramics to reduce the carbon footprint of their manufacture.
Recently his research highlights include:
