Current Position

  • Professor, Department of Mechanical and Materials Engineering, Queen’s University, Canada. 2008-present


  • Associate Professor, Dept. of Mech. and Mat. Eng., Queen’s University, Canada, 2004-2008
  • Group Leader, Engineering Materials Group, ISIS Facility, Rutherford Appleton Laboratory, UK, 2000-2004
  • Scientist, Engineering Materials Group, ISIS Facility, Rutherford Appleton Laboratory, UK, 1998-2000
  • Postdoctoral Fellow, LANSCE, Los Alamos National Laboratory, 1996-1998
  • PhD, Materials Science and Metallurgy, University of Cambridge, UK, 1996
  • BA, Physics and Theoretical Physics, University of Cambridge, UK, 1992

Relevant Activities

  • Carried out experiments at APS, ESRF, NSLS, Daresbury and several neutron facilities.
  • APS Sector 1 Beamline Advisory Group, member (2009-present)
  • Member of proposal review panel for various neutron diffraction facilities (2000 - present).
  • Versailles Agreement on Materials and Standards (VAMAS), TWA 20; Member (1996-2002) and Chair (2003-2010), to carry out research to facilitate international standardisation of stress measurement by neutron (1996-2002) and synchrotron (2003-2009) radiation.
  • Japanese Proton Accelerator Research Centre, member of International advisory panel on technique development (2006)
  • Los Alamos National Lab., Basic Energy Science Programme Evaluation Committee, advising on instrument build programme at LANSCE (2001-2003).

Research Interests

  • Structural materials for nuclear power applications
  • Micromechanisms of deformation in metals and bio-materials; slip, twinning, phase transformation, cracking.
  • Development and application of neutron and x-ray scattering techniques into research of structural materials, data analysis and statistical treatments.


  • To strengthen communications between the user community and the APS. I have worked as an instrument responsible scientist, and been a beamline user at synchrotron and neutron x-ray facilities around the world. I hope to bring this dual perspective and experience to assist in addressing the challenges facing the APS ahead.
