Personal profile

Research interests

My research interests are in the area of mechanical properties of materials and their interrelation with the structural integrity of components.  Specifically much of my work addresses fitness for service of static and rotating components operating at high temperature or within aggressive environments in the Energy Sector.

Particular areas in which I have worked in recent years include:

  • creep and creep-fatigue of high temperature  components in gas turbines, petrochemical, conventional and nuclear power plant
  • fatigue in offshore steel structures
  • thermomechanical fatigue in petrochemical plant and gas turbine blades
