Professor Catherine M. Bishop earned her PhD in Materials Science and Engineering from MIT in 2003 before moving to the Department of Materials at the University of Oxford for a postdoc and Career Development Fellowship. She joined the Department of Mechanical Engineering at the University of Canterbury in 2008. Catherine currently leads the Materials Cluster@UC, a large network of materials researchers at the University of Canterbury.
Catherine's research focuses on phase transformations, thermodynamics and microstructural evolution with applications in functional materials, alloys, thin films and molten oxide electrolysis.
I’m passionate about materials science and engineering. My particular interest is in interfacial phenomena and how they affect microstructures and thus properties.Professor Catherine Bishop
