Biography

Engineering Doctorate: An in-situ Scanning Kelvin Probe Applied to Mechanisms of Corrosion-driven Coating delamination in Organic Coated Steels (2004).

Melanie Loveridge is a materials chemist with a proven background in new materials development and characterisation in the disciplines of energy storage systems (batteries) and corrosion inhibition in coated metal systems. She completed an Engineering Doctorate sponsored by Akzo Nobel & Tata: An in-situ Scanning Kelvin Probe Applied to Mechanisms of Corrosion-driven Coating delamination in Organic Coated Steels (2004).

Melanie has been involved with successful funding applications for EPSRC and TSB grants and collaborated in projects with top UK research groups. A significant time spent within industry (including a university spin-out company) has given her experience of being a specialist, leading teams and generating journal publications and inventions in international patents. Her research background is multi-disciplinary enabling cross-pollination and successes in taking concepts to material realities.
