Prof Howard Stone
Advanced Metals Processing Steering Group
Howard Stone is Professor of Metallurgy at the University of Cambridge. His research interests centre on the development of new alloys for high performance engineering applications. This includes the design of conventional and novel alloys, understanding their response to processing and determining the mechanistic origins of their properties. In this regard he has particular interest in the use of neutron and synchrotron scattering to gain new insights into alloy behaviour and serves on the peer-review committees for international facilities. He also works extensively with industry, especially with companies in the aerospace, power generation and building materials sectors and has several patents for new alloys targeted at industrial applications.
