Welcome to my webpage, which is designed to give an overview of my research and other activities. My expertise and work are mainly focused in developing methodologies for studying the structure-property-composition relationship of a wide range of material systems, including metals, alloys, composites, polymers, pharmaceuticals and biologicals. Specific areas of interest include:

  • Development & Applications of Environmental Scanning Electron Microscopy;
  • EDX & EBSD in (E)SEM mode;
  • In-situ mechanical testing in the (E)SEM;
  • Development & Applications of Macromechanical testing techniques;
  • Non-equilibrium solidification & processing;
  • Research Management.
For more information, please see the links below. If you would like to discuss any aspects of my work or just share an idea, you are more than welcome to contact me.
