Dr King completed his PhD at the University of Technology Sydney in 2016 with a thesis entitled High-entropy alloys for use in advanced nuclear applications. His last appointment in the Wenman group was working with Zr alloys funded by an
EPSRC research grant. In this project he used density functional theory to investigate the evolution of dislocations in HCP Zr when solutes of Sn, Fe and Nb are present.
Dr King is author to over 20 publications and his expertise is in materials modelling on the atomic scale. He is also author to a widely used prediction tool for high-entropy alloys -
Alloy Search and Predict.
He now works as a Data and Machine Learning Engineer for HSBC, UK
