Euan's research focusses on understanding the mechanical behaviour of materials at the microscopic scale. He uses advanced materials characterisation techniques to develop physcially-based, predictive modelling tools. Euan is particularly interested in advanced structural materials used in the transport and energy industries.
Below is a 3-D representation of the microstructure of an industrially important titanium alloy, characterized using high-energy X-ray Diffraction Microscopy (XRDM) at the Advanced Photon Source in Chicago, USA. In the same way that a medical doctor uses x-rays to see if you have a broken bone, Euan uses x-rays to look inside materials to see how they deform and fracture during mechanical loading.
Euan is Lecturer in Materials Engineering at the University of Glasgow. He is a member of the Systems, Power and Energy Research Division in the School of Engineering, part of the College of Science and Engineering.
Euan is a Chartered Engineer and a Member of the Institution of Mechanical Engineers (IMechE). He sits on the IMechE Glasgow & SW Scotland Area Committee and the Scottish Association for Metals (SAM) Committee.
Euan graduated with a 1st Class MEng in Mechanical Design Engineering from the University of Glasgow in 2007, where he was awarded the IMechE Institution Medal for Best Overall Final Year Project. He spent a brief spell working in industry as a member of the Adidas Innovation Team in Germany before continuing his education. Euan graduated from Christ Church, University of Oxford with a DPhil in Engineering Science in 2011, where he was a member of the Solid Mechanics and Materials Engineering Group. Whilst at Oxford Euan was College Lecturer in Engineering Science at Oriel College.
Before joining the University of Glasgow Euan held a number of post-doctoral positions at world-leading research institutions, including the Advanced Forming Research Centre, Cornell University and Carnegie Mellon University.
I am always keen to supervise high quality research students. Funded-PhD positions can be found in the Current Opportunities section below. If you want to suggest your own research topic then please contact me and I am more than happy to support self-funded PhD projects or applications for PhD scholarships.
