Dr Kevin Knowles

University Senior Lecturer


Dr Kevin M. Knowles is a University Senior Lecturer in the Department of Materials Science and Metallurgy in the University of Cambridge and a Fellow of Churchill College.

The research interests of his research group focus on the relationship between microstructure and the mechanical and electronic properties of inorganic engineering materials. Transmission electron microscope techniques are routinely used by his research group, as well as scanning electron microscopy, X-ray diffraction, mechanical testing and electrical characterisation. In the specific area of nuclear materials he has an interest in the characterisation of voids and line and planar defects in materials for nuclear reactor environments.
