Research Interests

Functional components, driven by the martensitic transformation in Ti- and NiTi- based alloys, offer huge potential benefits to many engineering sectors. However, one of the key barriers to realising this potential has been the inability to tailor the transformation behaviour to specific operational conditions.

My work aims to shine more light on the effect of composition and processing on the functionality of these Ti-based alloys through the use of advanced electron microscopy techniques along with diffraction based experiments.
