University of Cambridge
I am a Ph.D. candidate at the University of Cambridge. As a member of the Composites and Coatings group at the Gordon Laboratory, I research how the mechanical behaviour of Thermal Barrier Coatings (TBCs) affect its life. Our group, led by Prof. T. W. Clyne, has its base in the Dept. of Materials Science & Metallurgy and has strongly influenced the now pervasive various composites & coating systems. I'm currently monitoring the variation of porosity, strength and elastic modulus of zirconia based TBCs in service condition. I am also a member of The Gates Council @ Cambridge, a student body of the Gates Cambridge Scholars.
