I studied at the University of Leicester in the United Kingdom and achieved a 1st Class Masters in Mechanical Engineering (with year in industry) (honours).
I am now studying single-crystal/investment casting of superalloys for aerospace and power generation applications. I am working in partnership with Rolls Royce, looking into the dendritic structure of solidified Ni-base alloys, particularly the primary arm spacing.
If successful, my work can help improve turbine strength, material temperature capability and reduce solution heat treatment time. These advances in turbine design will help improve jet engine thermal efficiency, save up to an 1/8th of manufacturing cost and reduce C02 emissions.
