    Dr Warnett's main research focus is in X-ray Computed Tomography (XCT). His primary research interests are in developing faster scanning procedures through new acquisition procedures and minimizing data, and error quantification of XCT for metrology. Specifically, the repeatability and reproducibility of scanning protocols using applied image processing techniques and how this is measured. He has experience in quantitative application of the technique to evaluation of additive manufacture, materials characterisation, automotive/aerospace industries and heritage sector.


    Dr Warnett joined WMG as an Assistant Professor in August 2016.

    Dr Warnett previously was a Research Fellow within the Product Evaluation Technologies group at WMG, managing research in X-ray Computed Tomography. In particular, he worked with numerous industrial partners to exploit the technique to aid in new product development.

    He has influenced policy in the area with co-authorship of the EPSRC Tomography Roadmap, leading to the recommendation for "higher speed/throughput" CT and the acquisition of strategic equipment (EP/S010076/1). Most recently he was successful as Co-Investigator for the National Research Facility for X-ray Computed Tomography, of which Warwick is the Metrology spoke (EP/T02593X/1).

    Dr Warnett is an integral part of the imaging community as Secretary to the international conference ToScA and part of the committee for dimensional XCT conference. He is a part of national and international working groups for the development of the new ISO 10360 standard for X-ray Computed Tomography in efforts to standardise processes and therefore results. Further he is pushing new computational methods within the community through the Collaborative Computational Project in Imaging (CCPi, EP/T026677/1).

    Alongside, Dr Warnett has helped demonstrate the technique to non-engineering groups that has enhanced their own applications such as West Midlands Police and Oxford Natural History Museum.

    Dr Warnett obtained a BSc Mathematics in 2009, MSc Mechanical Systems Engineering in 2010 and PhD Engineering (focused on granular flows) 2014 all within the University of Warwick.
