In 2016 he completed his first degree at Swansea University in Mechanical Engineering, before working with Haydale Ltd, as research assistant, on pressure sensor technology. He has a background in areas such as electronics, programming, product design, manufacturing, 3D printing, and polymer composites manufacture. David’s current research interests are focused around nano-particle ink formulations for industrial printing and coating applications.

Doctorate overview.

I am looking into the impact adding certain carbonaceous materials into inks and resins for printing, coating, and composites applications. Right now I am focusing on surface chemistry of these materials.
