Key Team Members
Working on this ground-breaking technology development project we have the multidisciplinary Flash Sintering team, headed by project leader Dr. David Pearmain.
Dr. David Pearmain, Head of Flash Sintering
David has a PhD in Nanophysics, the work for which involved an effort with industrial partners to design efficient structural screening techniques of Palladium catalyst particles. David heads our Flash Sintering Materials Processing team.
Dr. Andre Prette, Technical Manager
Andre is a Materials Engineer with a MEng Degree in Semiconducting Ceramics. He has a PhD on synthesis and sintering behaviour of ceramics for Solid Oxide Fuel Cells (SOFC), more specific on Flash Sintering of ceramic materials. Andre has worked as a researcher at University of Bayreuth, Germany carrying out research and executing projects on Polymer Derived Ceramics. His materials expertise and extensive experience in flash sintering technology allows him to develop new technologies and applications and acts as a technical translator and designer for the exploitation of Flash Sintering.
Dr. Chris Green, Senior Electrical Design Engineer
Chris holds a BEng in Electrical Engineering and PhD focusing on nanostructured polymer materials. With experience managing an international R&D project in the power transmission sector, Chris is the Electrical Design Engineer, responsible for developing the electrical hardware and control systems for any given FES application.
Dr. Aminat Bolarinwa, Senior Materials Engineer
Aminat holds a MEng Degree in Chemical and Biochemical Engineering and a PhD in the formulation of a bioresponsive ceramic bone replacement. With significant experience of formulating and sintering bioceramics, Aminat works on the processing of advanced ceramic materials and the effects of sintering atmospheres.
Sherry Ghanizadeh: Materials Scientist
Sherry is a Ceramics Engineer with a M.Sc. in Nanomaterials for Nano-engineering, and a Ph.D. in Synthesis and Processing of Nanostructured Alumina Ceramics. With expertise in Materials Science and Engineering including Synthesis and Processing of Ceramics and manufacturing of thin films, Sherry brings a wealth of knowledge to the ever expanding team here at Lucideon.
Our Flash Sintering team is, of course, backed up by our extensive team of international scientists, engineers, technicians, commercial analysts and consultants who work with clients to develop the next generation of materials, products, processes and technologies.
