Research Interests

Dr Srirangam's research interests are in physical metallurgy, processing of metals and materials characterisation. He has excellent experience in the areas of metal casting, solidification, heat treatment and structure-property relations of metal alloys used for automotive, aerospace and nuclear reactor applications. During his research career, he has used advanced characterisation techniques such as high energy X-ray diffraction (HEXRD), XAFS, ultra/small angle X-ray scattering (USAXS/SAXS) and nano/micro synchrotron tomography to understand the internal structure and behaviour of materials in a wide spectrum of length scales (from mm to nm/atomic level).

Biography

Dr Prakash Srirangam joined WMG in February 2014 as Assistant Professor (Metals Processing).

Dr Srirangam previously worked as a Research Associate at the Manchester X-ray Imaging Facility (MXIF) at the School of Materials, University of Manchester. At MXIF, he worked on characterisation of nano reinforced particles in metal matrix composites using synchrotron micro/nano tomography and USAXS/SANS methods. Before moving to MXIF, he also worked as a postdoctoral fellow at Queen's University, Kingston, Canada where he worked on hydrogen embrittlement of zirconium alloys.

Dr Srirangam obtained his Master's degree (M. Tech) in Metallurgical Engineering from Banaras Hindu University (IIT-BHU), India, in 2004 and his PhD degree in Metallurgical Engineering from McMaster University, Canada in 2010.

Dr Srirangam is also a visiting academic at the School of Materials at the University of Manchester.
