Materials Science and Engineering - Adjunct staff
Light Metals, particularly Aluminium and Magnesium alloys, Solidification and Casting and the relationship between cast and heat treated microstructure and mechanical properties.
Professor Juri's research interests are focusing on the mechanical properties of metallic materials, particularly on modelling the mechanical response by using fundamental concepts of crystal plasticity and dislocation theory.
Nanoionics based on nanoporous membranes for energy storage and conversion devices, water purification, smart membranes, drug delivery, biological tissue engineering and other new nanoionic devices, Superelastic cellular materials for flexible electronics, soft robotics, tissue engineering, thermal management and high-performance nanocomposites.
Dr. Sellar's research centres at present on the relationship between the microstructure and engineering properties of stabilized zirconia (Zr02) alloys, both topics of considerable controversy and industrial importance.
