My greatest skill is acting as an applications facilitator. I have the ability to take research based projects and convert them into practical shop floor operations.
My major skills lie in surface engineering which is, I feel, an under utilised area within industry probaly due to lack of education in the subject and the use of Boron Carbide reinforced Metal Matrix Composites.
The recent achievements involve the rectification of a cracking problem on the front landing gear of a passenger aircraft and the design of equipment for in situ re-engineering and the surface engineering of replacement joints.
B.Sc Hons Metallurgy
