Project Title: Advancing tool material and cutting technology for near net shape manufacture of titanium alloy components

Academic Supervisor: Dr Martin Jackson

AMRC Supervisor: Dr Nikos Tapoglou

Industry Sponsor: Seco Tools and Element Six

The project will explore the challenges related to the machining of near net shape titanium alloy aerospace components by carrying out machinability trials in order to develop tooling materials and design as well as considering the machining strategies used.


I'm doing an EngD to have the chance to work on projects relating to state of the art machining technology to gain expertise in this subject as well as to make a research contribution.


I love playing and listening to music as well as getting out in the peak district when it's nice out.
