Professor Barbara Shollock FREng
Professor and founding Head, Department of Engineering, King’s College London
Professor Shollock’s research on phase transformations from the nano- to micro-scale has provided fundamental theoretical and experimental insight into the understanding, development, and performance enhancement of metallic alloys. Her research outputs have played key roles in advancing important aspects of the UK engineering industry, in particular the aerospace sector.
She is a leading advocate for engineering through a range of activities, most recently as founding Head of the relaunched Department of Engineering at King’s College London, where she is working to raise the profile of inclusive engineering and its wide benefits to society.
