Research

Professor Khan established NanoCorr, Energy & Modelling (NCEM) research group in 2015 with a significant research portfolio of direct, capital and in-kind funding since 2014. The following are NCEM’s wider Developmental and Exploratory Research activities:

Sustainability (Sustainable methodologies of preventing corrosion and coating failures in large complex interacting systems): This area provides a strategic focus for inter-disciplinary Developmental Research in advanced materials, mechanical and chemical engineering. Research in this area was supported through several projects including; 2 x PGRs match funded by Defence Science and Technology Laboratory DSTL, MoD 1 x PGR match funded by The Tank Museum and 1 x PDRA by Wessex institute of Technology. This area and advanced materials theme are supported by 2 x University Global Visiting Fellowships schemes, both fellows are from Tsinghua University Beijing PR China (THE 1st Asia University, 14th World Reputation and 23rd World University Ranking 2019).
