Natalie Wint is currently a Lecturer within the Materials Research Centre (MRC) within the Swansea University.
Her current research focuses on the corrosion of metallic alloy coatings used within the steel industry and the use of ion exchange resin based corrosion inhibitors within organic coatings. She has the ability to use state of the art electrochemical equipment such as SVET, SKP and SKPFM.
Natalie's work involves working closely with industrial partners such as Tata Steel, BASF and UPol and involves collaborations with world leading universities within the field such as McMaster University (Ontario), the University of Virginia, the University of Southern Mississippi, and the Fontana Corrosion Center (The Ohio State University). She has also completed work alongside The Singapore Institute of Manufacturing Technology.
In light of the opportunities offered by additive manufacturing, Natalie's current research aims to investigate the corrosion performance of components produced using laser powder bed fusion.
She is also interested in the incorporation of inclusivity and diversity within the engineering curriculum, as well as decolonising of the curriculum.
