Dr Subhankar Biswas joined the Institute for Frontier Materials (IFM) as an Associate Research Fellow in May 2017, and he will be working with Prof Matthew Barnett in the mineAlloy Training Centre. In his new role, Subhankar will undertake research in the area of metallurgy, producing, analysing and interpreting data obtained in relation to the wear of metal components employed in the mining sector. He will also develop new wear testing equipment, and develop sensing techniques to monitor wear.
Subhankar received his PhD degree at The University of Newcastle, Australia, in February 2016, and he has over ten years of multi-disciplinary research experience in Materials Science and Mechanical Engineering. Before joining Deakin University, he worked as Research Assistant in the School of Engineering at The University of Newcastle, Australia, where he conducted industry-based research on wear of materials. Previously, Subhankar worked as Consulting Engineer for TUNRA Bulk Solids Australia, on several projects including: impact wear and abrasion testing of commercial wear liners, air-stream erosion and slurry erosion of metals, alloys and rubber liners.
