Research interests

My research interests are focused on the interactions of solid particle erosion and wear of materials in corrosive environments, with specific emphasis on the development of mapping techniques for understanding the mechanisms of materials loss. These include oil & gas, bio-medical and marine renewable fields. I head up the Tribology Research Group in the Department.  I am a Fellow of the Institute of Physics (CPhys, FInsP), of the Institute of Materials, Mining and Minerals (FIMMM) and the Institution of Engineers of Ireland (CEng, FIEI).

I have led the EPSRC funded ReC-ASM project which aims to optimize materials in marine and tidal energy conversion and currently lead a group of 15 PhD and MEng researchers including 3 Research Associates.  

I am the author/co-author of approximately 200 publications (135 journal articles) and have a H index of 40.

I have presented my research findings at over 70 international/national conferences.

I lead the International Network on Tribo-Corrosion (TrICorr-Net) and sit on several editorial boards including Tribology International.

I am Editor-in-Chief of Journal of Bio- and Tribo-Corrosion (Springer).

I was Overseas Chair for Tribo-Corrosion V, Hyderabad, India, December 2016.
