Ross graduated from the University of Glasgow in 2017 with a degree in Mechanical Engineering. His interests lie at the intersection of continuum mechanics and computational materials science. These interests, coupled with an interest in the aerospace sector, were behind the decision to pursue a PhD, modelling the inertia friction welding process of nickel-based superalloys at both the macroscale (from a process modelling perspective using Abaqus), and the mesoscale (with non-isothermal phase field modelling accounting for multiple grains, phases, and components using MOOSE).
