Personal profile

Biography

Robert is a Research Fellow in nuclear materials examining how radiation damage affects the microstructure of several metals, alloys and ceramic materials. He gained his first degree in chemistry (MChem) at the University of Manchester. Following completion of his MChem degree Robert took up a position at the National Nuclear Laboratory (NNL) as a radiochemist. He then went on to study further, completing his PhD on the topic of non-oxide ceramics for use in next generation nuclear power plants at Imperial College London before taking his position as Research Fellow here in the School of Computing and Engineering.
