Paul Nnamchi joined the Department of Metallurgical and Materials Engineering ESUT in 2019. He obtained his PhD, Meng, and B.Eng. at Sheffield University, ESUT, Technical University of Delft in the Netherlands (TUDelft) and Enugu State University of Science and Technology, Enugu-Nigeria respectively. Paul has held scholarly appointments at Northumbria University, Sheffield University, Max Planck’s Institute for Iron and Steel Research, Dusseldorf, Germany, The Netherlands Institute for Metals Research (NIMR) at TU-Delft with interdisciplinary research experience in new and emerging metallic materials: bulk metallic glasses, high entropy alloys, self-healing materials, biomaterials designs, and microstructure physics, Dr. Paul Nnamchi is responsible for the metallurgical and materials academic postgraduate programs including planning and implementation of the annual management plan. He is responsible for supervising a research group and for teaching undergraduate and postgraduate students in material science and engineering projects. His research group is interested in the development of new green materials for construction and high value manufacturing. His manufacturing research is conducted on the near-industrial scale and much of it is focused on detailed investigations of novel manufacturing routes based on the use of locally available raw materials and is conducted in close collaboration with industry. Dr. Paul Nnamchi is a Fellow of the Institute of Materials, Metals, Mining (IOM3), United Kingdom, He is a Chartered Engineer (UK), Chartered Scientist (UK), and an associate professor in the Department of Metallurgical and Materials Engineering. He has developed various research subjects such as: design and integrity characterization of biomaterial alloys; development of bio-inspired structural components; development of rapid manufacturing technologies for building structures. Dr. Nnamchi has presented his research at many international conferences and symposiums. He served as a member of Professional Member African Materials Society, MRS (2009), member of International Bio Metals Association (2015), Council for Regulation of Engineering in Nigeria COREN (2011), and member of Institute of Physics UK (2011).
