Prof Jonathan Lloyd

I currently lead a multidisciplinary geomicrobiology group working at the interface between biology and geology. Our research focuses on the mechanisms of microbial metal reduction, with emphasis on the environmental impact and biotechnological applications of metal-reducing bacteria. Current activities are supported by funds from NERC, BBSRC, EPSRC, the EU and industry.

Prof Ian Kinloch

My research focuses on polymeric and carbon (graphene and nanotubes  and related nanomaterials. The research takes the science from the controlled growth of the nanomaterials through to their processing and applications. My research on applications is on polymer-nanocarbon composites, electrodes and the bio-nano interface.

Dr Colin Leach

This year we have updated final year options in energy conversion, storage and nano-materials, including state of the art graphene lectures.

We ensure our students develop a strong basis in the principles of materials science, leading on from their ‘A’ level studies in Maths, Physics and Chemistry, before developing applied skills through  laboratory work, individual and group research projects and CASE studies.

Dr Dirk Engelberg

Dr Engelberg’s research group focuses on the development of multi-scale assessment approaches for the prediction, simulation and mitigation of environment-assisted degradation of stainless alloys in nuclear plant, radwaste and oil & gas environment. Dr. Engelberg has broad expertise in metallurgy, microstructure and grain boundary engineering, electrochemistry, and the application of in-situ characterisation techniques, including x-ray computed tomography, image analysis, and 2D/3D image and volume correlation.
