Gavin Yearwood

Research Applications Specialist

Gavin_YearwoodDr Gavin Yearwood first attended the University of Birmingham as an undergraduate, he remained there completing his PhD and then a further research position, all within the school of Metallurgy and Material Science.

His focus during his PhD and further research was in the production, application and optimisation of a physics based model. He built a thermomechanical predictive model and inserted it in a commercial finite element software. It was from the use of this commercial software that Gavin became familiar with Advanced Research Computing (ARC), having to run lots of large scale simulations as well as trying out various open source software to determine their effectiveness in future research projects.
