Chair of the Researcher Network
Dr Oriol Gavalda Diaz is a Transitional Assistant Professor and Chair of the Researcher Network at the University of Nottingham. Oriol obtained his PhD working within the Rolls Royce University Technology Centre (UTC) in manufacturing at the University of Nottingham, looking at the behaviour of ceramic composites after a material removal process. Before re-joining the University of Nottingham, Oriol spent over 3 years in the Centre of Advanced Structural Ceramics (CASC) at Imperial College London. Currently, his main interests involve understanding the failure of materials via small scale testing and advanced characterisation techniques and the design of new ceramics and composites.
