Advanced Materials Research Group



Akisin Cletus John had his B.Engr from Nigeria, and his MSc from the University of Nottingham, both in Mechanical Engineering. I am currently doing research as a PhD student with the advanced materials research group (AMRG), coatings and surface engineering (CSE) sub-division. My research is on thermal and cold spray additive manufacturing of high entropy alloys, involving manufacturing a range of light-weight high entropy alloys and their coatings. These are new and advanced materials that would find applications in the aerospace, automotive and energy sectors.

Expertise Summary

My expertise includes:

  • Finite element modelling of high strain rate and deformation of particles under high impacting process as in cold and thermal spraying.
  • Thermodynamic modelling of multi-component systems such as high entropy alloys.
  • Thermal and cold spray manufacturing of coating materials.
  • Project management and research development.
