Dr Chu Lun Alex Leung
University College London
The lecturer in Imaging of Advanced Materials and Manufacturing in the Department of Mechanical Engineering, obtained his PhD in Material Science (University of Manchester, 2018) and MEng in Aerospace Materials (Imperial College London, 2010). He specialises in the application of synchrotron and laboratory X-ray imaging techniques to study additive manufacturing (AM) processes. His research focuses on the development of intelligent advanced manufacturing using cutting-edge sensing technologies. His role in the MAPP team is to (1) develop and apply multi-modal imaging (e.g. optical, thermal and X-ray) and diffraction techniques for studying rapid solidification phenomena during AM and (2) provide key insights into the fundamentals of AM and generate data for validating existing and developing new process simulation models. He is the Chair of the MAPP training committee and advocates for developing a professional mentorship scheme for the MAPP hub and its members.
