Research interests

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.

Biography

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 ChurchUniversity 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 CentreCornell University and Carnegie Mellon University.
