New Process Engineer joins ANFF-VIC

The Victorian Node of the Australian National Fabrication Facility has recently welcomed a new team member to its ranks.

Dr Ashley Dyer has joined the Melbourne Centre for Nanofabrication (MCN) as a Process Engineer, he will join Yang Lim’s team and will initially focus on thin-films support and thermal processing.

Ash comes to us from the UK following the completion of a PhD at Swansea University’s Institute of Structural Materials, where he also completed a Master’s of Physics. His research was mainly focused on thermomechanical effects in proprietary alloys for Rolls-Royce plc with an emphasis on mechanical test development and understanding micro/nanomechanical failure modes.

Since April, Ash has been working with long-term MCN industry client, MuPharma on a project involving development, prototyping and testing of next-generation devices for ultrasonic drug-delivery.
