This is a new role that has been created as part of an EU-funded (European Regional Development Fund) research collaboration project supporting industry within the south west of England (Plymouth Materials Characterisation Project). As one of the new Technical Specialists I will be jointly responsible for the day-to-day running and management of the new FIB-SEM (focused ion beam scanning electron microscope), which was also acquired using ERDF. Within this role I will be utilising my knowledge of materials engineering developed through completing my MEng in Automotive Materials Engineering and undertaking my PhD in Developing a Dual-Layer System for the Mitigation of Tin Whiskers, both at Loughborough University. I have also worked for a number of different companies including, Engineering Support Technician at Ross Ceramics, Rolls Royce plc (Derbyshire), Research Assistant at Loughborough University (Leicestershire) and Research Engineer at IHI Corporation (Yokohama, Japan).
