Max joined the Composite and Coatings Group in 2014 for the fourth year project of the Natural Sciences (Materials Science) degree. He then went on to join the group as a PhD student working on nanoindentation and ballistic impact studies with embrittled metals. The focus is on the generation and characterisation of fracture/cracking at varying strain rates to gain insight into fracture properties and develope the techniques in conjunction with FEM analysis.
