Professor James Marrow

James Martin Professor of Energy Materials

Oxford Martin Senior Alumni Fellow

Professor James Marrow was Co-Director of the Oxford Martin Programme in Nuclear and Energy Materials from 2010-2015.

Professor Marrow's research is focussed on the degradation of structural materials and the role of microstructure. A key aspect is the investigation of fundamental mechanisms of damage accumulation using novel materials characterisation techniques. This has concentrated recently on computed X-ray tomography and strain mapping by digital image correlation, which he applies to studies of the degradation of Generation IV nuclear materials such as graphite and silicon carbide composites
