Overview

My research is focused on understanding and predicting microstructure evolution in materials process and its consequence on materials behaviour. To achieve this, my research combines experimental observations with high-performance computing, mathematical modelling, and non-equilibrium thermodynamics. On-going work using these methods involves applications to solidification process in additive manufacturing, precipitation reactions, and microstructure behaviour in nuclear materials.
