Philip Harrison

Dr Philip Harrison is Senior Lecturer in Materials in the Department of Mechanical Engineering at Glasgow University where his research is concerned with the experimental characterisation and numerical modelling of a broad range of materials including textile composites, smart materials (magneto-rheological elastomers and shape memory polymers) and polymeric foams. Prior to working at Glasgow, Dr Harrison conducted materials-related research in several internationally leading groups in Europe, including: The Composites Group at the University of Nottingham, UK (2001-2005), The Materials Group in the Technical University of Eindhoven, The Netherlands (1999-2001), The Centre de Mise en Forme in the Ecole des Mines de Paris, France (1997-1999) and The Rheology Group in the University of Wales at Aberystwyth, UK (1992-1997).Dr Harrison served as President of the Scottish Association of Metals (2013-2015) and has been a Chartered Engineer and a Member of the Institute of Mechanical Engineers since 2006 and is a Fellow of the Higher Education Academy. He served as Lead Guest Editor for a special edition of the journal Advances in Materials Science and Engineering (2013) and as a session developer for ICCM2013 and recently recieved an Elsevier 'Outstanding Reviewer Award' in recognition of journal reviewing services. Current research interests focus on the large deformation mechanics and multi-scale modelling of engineering and smart materials. He leads the Feasibility Study 'Multi-Step Thermoforming of Multi-Cavity, Multi-Axial Advanced Thermoplastic Composite Parts'.
