Craig Melton

I studied a M.Sc. in Corrosion Control Engineering at The University of Manchester in 2013 and have been working in the Oil and Gas industry as a Corrosion Engineer till now.

 I am currently based at the University of Leicester and working with The Welding Institute to develop a Self Monitoring Coating System.

 I am hoping that this work will streamline inspection regimes and reduce unplanned maintenance which in turn will reduce the cost of energy for all consumers.

Kyle Nicholls

I graduated from the University of Leicester in 2017 with a 2:1 MEng (Hons) degree in Mechanical Engineering.

I am now pursuing a PhD with the IMPaCT centre at the University of Leicester in investigating the influence of cryogenic processing parameters on the mechanical properties and wear performance of engineering materials.

The aim of my work is to understand the microstructural changes that occur during cryogenic heat treatments of metals and to further understand how this directly affects the mechanical properties the metals then exert.
