Biography

David Browne is Vice-Principal for Research, Innovation and Impact, UCD College of Engineering & Architecture. He is a Professor in Materials Science & Engineering at UCD. Following a BE in Mechanical Engineering from UCD (1985), David worked for the Garrett Corporation (now part of Honeywell) subsidiary in Waterford, Ireland, on casting of turbocharger impellers. From 1987 to 1990 he was involved with joint research (Oxford University and Davy McKee Poole Ltd.) in the UK on twin-roll casting of aluminum alloys. He was awarded an M.Sc. (Materials Science) for this work. In 1990 he joined the faculty of University College Dublin, where he now leads the Phase Transformation Research Group, concentrating on alloy solidification and bulk metallic glasses. In 1996-1997 Dr Browne spent sabbatical leave at Cornell and Oxford Universities.  In 2003 David was awarded the degree of D.Phil. (Materials Science) from the University of Oxford for his research on computational modeling the columnar-equiaxed transition in alloy solidification. David has supervised many PhD students to completion, and has published over 200 papers, including over 80 in international peer-reviewed journals. In December 2015 David was PI on a project which achieved X-ray directly monitored equiaxed solidification of a metallic alloy in the microgravity conditions of space, for the first time ever. The work was published in the Journal of Crystal Growth 454, 2016, pp. 96-104, which is openly available at:  http://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S0022024816304675
