Euan's research focused on understanding the mechanical behaviour of materials at the microscopic scale. His research used advanced materials characterisation and simulation tools, capable of capturing the effects of a material's microstructure on it's mechanical response, to develop physically-based, predictive modelling tools.
Dr Kayleigh Nelson PhD Student
Kayleigh completed her PhD on the deformation of titanium alloys using in situ micro-mechanical testing and advanced microscopy techniques. She has obtained a position of Visiting Scientist at Cornell University, NY, USA (2016). Previously completing a Masters degree in Product Design Engineering as a joint venture between the University of Glasgow and the Glasgow School of Art.
She passed her viva with minor corrections in October 2019.
Jonathan Spence MEng Student
Jonathan completed his MEng project in January 2018. His interest is in the precipitation kinetics of heat treated Nickel-based Superalloys, for jet engine application. He joined the materials research group in 2017 and was working in partnership with Aubert & Duval.
