Project Title: Investigation of the WC-Co/CFRP and diamond/CFRP tribo-systems by thermo-mechanical finite element analysis


Academic Supervisor: Dr Jose Curiel-Sosa

AMRC Supervisor: Dr Julian Merino-Perez

I'm currently undertaking a literature review of CFRP, Numerical simulation of drilling processes and Experimental investigation techniques.


After completing my Master's degree I felt like I knew very little over a lot of different disciplines, so in order to become an expert in my desired field, I felt there was no other option than a PhD qualification.


I have two working cocker spaniels called Archie and Bernie, who keep me busy most of the time. I also recently purchased a house along with my girlfriend Hannah, which I have spent most of the summer months renovating.
