Biographical entry Birbilis, Nick

Occupation
materials scientist

Summary

Nick Birbilis is a materials engineer internationally recognised as an expert on corrosion, durability management and the behaviour of metallic elements. His research, often with industry collaboration, has resulted in significant developments in the production of corrosion-resistant ultra-lightweight 'stainless' magnesium and aluminium alloys and greater understanding of the role of microstructure in the corrosion of engineering materials. This research has potential implications for energy efficiency, pollution reduction and the manufacture of metallic biomaterials.
