Personal profile

Biography

Dr Parfitt joined Coventry University in the summer of 2015. He has worked in the materials field for several years, beginning with a DPhil at Oxford University which focused on high pressure physics of solid state battery materials. He spent four years as a research associate at Imperial College London working on a variety of research projects including atomic scale simulations of nuclear fuels and solid-oxide fuel cell materials. Prior to joining Coventry University, he spent five years working for Rolls-Royce providing materials support to the naval nuclear programme. 

Research Interests

Atomic scale simulation; fuel cell and battery materials; irradiation damage and thermal ageing of steels; additive manufacturing of aerospace components; phase equilibria and thermodynamics

Fingerprint Fingerprint is based on mining the text of the person's scientific documents to create an index of weighted terms, which defines the key subjects of each individual researcher.
