Research Area

  • Alloying
  • Microstructure and properties of steel

Technical Focus

My primary focus is on physical metallurgy and the study of the effect of heat treating on microstructural development and mechanical properties. Previously I was involved in low carbon TRIP steel research, notably on strain ageing (bake hardening), mechanical stability of the retained austenite and high strain rate testing of these grades.

More recently I studied the Quenching and Partitioning process by assessing mechanical properties, such as tensile and hole expansion, as well as by a study of the physical metallurgy of the process through dilatometry and differential scanning calorimetry analysis.

I am currently involved in the wire, sheet and plate research.

In my view, a primary goal of academic engineering research should be a fundamental study of involved mechanisms, aiming at improving properties and/or optimizing processes in service to the industry. This approach can greatly contribute to the education of our students.
