- Manufacturing Systems
Samuel obtained his Bachelors degree in materials engineering (BEng), and a masters degree in advanced manufacturing engineering with management (MSc) at Loughborough University (2012-2017). During the time, Samuel completed a diploma in industrial studies (DIS) with distinction; involving the design and implementation of a computerised maintenance management system (CMMS). Following these, Samuel most-recently completed an MSc in business management (with finance) at BPP business school in London (2018-2019), before joining the enhanced composites and structures research team at Cranfield University's department of manufacturing (SATM).
Samuel's most notable research so far was in the ecofriendly production of graphene; a project that pioneered student-led graphene research at the materials department of Loughborough University. Samuel has since then become a member of the graphene council; keeping up with the developments towards commercialisation of graphene products. Samuel has further being involved with research in the development of over moulding as a technique for fabricating printed circuit boards.
Currently, Samuel is enrolled as a PhD student under the supervision of Dr Vijay Kumar Thakur and Dr Hamed Yazdani due to his interest in working on the development of process and/or material aspects of 3D printing. Samuel attended the advanced materials show (June 2019), and is currently working towards his first publication. He is also a sport fanatic, and an athlete representing the Cranfield University football team.
