Research Project: Fundamental mechanisms in titanium
David Dye (Imperial), Vassili Vorontsov (Imperial)

Felicity received her MSci from the Department of Materials Science and Metallurgy, University of Cambridge in 2016. Her Masters research project looked at the oxidation behaviours of new nickel-base superalloys. During her summer breaks, Felicity also undertook research projects in graphite intercalation compounds for hydrogen storage (based at UCL and ISIS Neutron Source), and in cobalt-base superalloy development with the Engineering Alloys group at Imperial College. She started her PhD with the same group at Imperial in 2016, after a research trip to look at titanium alloy samples in Berkeley, California. This work will feed into her PhD investigating fundamental mechanisms in titanium alloys to improve their performance as aerospace materials.
