Industry-funded PhD in Colloid and Interface Science in the School of Chemistry, University of Bristol. The aim of the PhD is to study self-assembly of surfactants in non-aqueous solvents under extreme conditions, especially high temperatures as are experienced in modern efficient internal combustion engines.

Ceramic-Matrix Composites (CMCs) are considered to be prime structural materials to replace metals for high temperature applications such as accident tolerant fuel cladding in nuclear reactor core (post Japanese Fukushima accident) and aerospace gas-turbine engine components of the immediate future.
Nuclear grade graphite has been one of the key life limiting factors for current UK Advanced Gas Cooled Reactors (AGRs) and is being projected for use in many Gen-IV reactor designs, such as pebble bed and prismatic high temperature reactors (HTRs).
