Consulting on a wide range of metallurgical and materials problems for Australian and international partners

My research contributions are in processing-structure-property relationships of structural metallic materials for high performance applications, with key interests in aerospace. Currently, these materials include Ni-based superalloys, advanced steels, Ti-alloys, and refractory metals processed by conventional thermo-mechanical routes or 3D printing. I combine state-of-the-art experimental techniques such as electron microscopy, atom probe tomography and thermal analysis with mechanical testing and contemporary modelling approaches. My research philosophy is to achieve a balance between fundamental discovery and industrial application. I am excited about developing the next generation of structural metallic materials in collaboration with industrial partners.

I am an editor of Journal of Materials Science and the NSW President of Materials Australia.
