Dr Andrew Cockburn
Senior Research Associate
Research interest- HIWI
Andrew's research centres around materials characterisation and analysis in support of the various laser processing technologies being developed within the group, with a particular interest in the laser assisted cold spray (LCS) powder deposition technique.
- Laser-assisted Cold Spray
- Cold gas dynamic manufacturing
Dr Andrew Cockburn joined the Institute for Manufacturing in June 2007. Andrew gained an MSci in Natural Sciences from the University of Cambridge before studying for a PhD in the Materials Science and Metallurgy department focusing on the processing and properties of porous metal systems.
