About

Ben runs the Experimental Micromechanics and Characterisation group in the Department of Materials, at Imperial College London. His group are interested in the properties and performance of materials, principally metals, at the microstructural lengthscale. He has been an active developer of the high angular resolution electron backscatter diffraction (HR-EBSD) technique. He actively develops and uses high (spatial) resolution digital image correlation (HR-DIC) as well as in-situ micropillar deformation methods. Characterisation of materials typically employs optical, X-ray, or SEM based methods to study processing-properties-performance related to microstructural evolution and mechanics.
