Dr Nicholas Lavery is Director of the Materials Advanced Characterisation Centre (MACH1).
Dr Lavery's research interests lie broadly in the use of material property measurement, computational modelling and experimental studies to develop novel industrial manufacturing processes and materials, with applications to engineering products in aerospace, medical, automotive and energy production.
Current research areas:
- Additive Manufacturing (specifically powder-bed Additive Layer Manufacturing)
- High Throughput Material Property Testing (MACH1)
- Computational modelling of various manufacturing processes (Additive Layer Manufacturing, Extrusion, Isostatic Powder Pressing, Sintering …)
- Rapid Alloy Prototyping
- Life Cycle Assessment
Over time spent in academic and industry, I have established a very wide range of international research collaboration demonstrated by the invitation to participate in and develop a number of EC FP7/H2020 proposals.
