NSIRC and Brunel University London PhD student Madie Allen, has joined TWI as a Project Leader within the third year of her PhD research.

Madie originally join TWI at the Middlesbrough technology centre in 2016 on a summer placement within the Numerical Modelling and Optimisation team, graduating the following year from Durham University with an Integrated Masters in Maths (MMath).

From academia to industry

Upon graduating, Madie decided to undertake her PhD with sponsorship form the Lloyd's Register Foundation (LRF), focusing on microstructure modelling techniques within metal additive manufacturing processes.

In 2018, Madie was part of a TWI team who won first place for Residual Stress Predictions in the NIST AM Benchmark. The research for which was later turned into a journal paper in a thematic issue of IMMI (Integrating Materials and Manufacturing Innovation).

At the NSIRC 2019 Annual Conference, Madie won first prize in the oral presentation category for second year students, for her presentation titled, ‘Predicting the microstructure of metal additively manufactured parts’.

More recently in October 2019, Madie presented at the SIMULIA Regional User Meeting in Liverpool, UK.
