Samantha Southern
Technical Assistant

Samantha  Southern

Samantha received a first class MEng honours degree in Materials Science from the University of Oxford in 2018.

 

During her final year at Oxford, Samantha undertook a project in collaboration with Rolls-Royce investigating the effects of heat treatment on the mechanical properties and in-service behaviour of 17-4 PH steel used in current generation nuclear reactors.

 

She also undertook a research project at MIT after her penultimate year fabricating ultra-thin fibres by near field electrospinning which could mimic axons in the brain and be used as scaffolds to test drugs for myelin related diseases such as multiple sclerosis.
