Profile picture of Dr Timothy Burnett

I am interested in all areas of advanced imaging and particularly in correlative workflows combining multiple techniques and scales of imaging. In particular I work directly with different scales of X-ray computed tomography in the lab and at synchrotron facilties and also I work with focused ion beam (FIB) serial sectioning to create complemtary 3D information. My work is aimed at understanding failure and degradation of different materials but with a particular emphasis on the environmentally assisted cracking of light alloys. 

I am Director of the Henry Moseley X-ray Imaging Facility and Deputy Director of the Beijing International Aeronautical Materials Corp (BIAM)-University of Manchester University Technology Centre.
