Outline of main research interests

Focus is the use of advanced processing and characterisation to understand microstructural development and properties in complex, novel alloys. Presently the main focus of research includes:
Ultra high strength nano-quasicrystalline and nano-fibril alloys and composites.
Processing and characterisation of Al-Fe-Cr-Ti-(Nb) alloys and FCC-BCC metal-metal fibril composites produced using non-equilibrium processing.
Use of large central synchrotron and neutron facilities applied to metallurgical problems.

Use of x-ray synchrotron (diffraction and spectroscopy) and neutron based techniques to investigate surface and bulk microstructure and local chemical structure in novel alloys.
