About us / The Team / Researchers /
Lorna is a PhD student in Prof. Peter Lee’s group, based at the Research Complex at Harwell. Her project involves helping to design and build an in-situ process replicator for the blown powder additive manufacturing process, which will be used for synchrotron X-ray experiments. The main focus of her work is to study the molten pool dynamics and solidification characteristics of metallic powders during AM. She is also looking at the interactions between the laser and powder particles, and the formation of defects such as porosity during processing.
