Fabio Scenini graduated in Mechanical Engineering with a specialization in Metallic Materials at the "Politecnico di Milano" Milan in 2001. He then moved to Manchester where he obtained an MSc in Corrosion Control Engineering at the Corrosion and Protection Centre UMIST and a PhD on Stress Corrosion Cracking in Nuclear Power Station Cooling Systems at the "Materials Performance Centre", the University of Manchester. He carried on working in the same centre before joining the Nuclear Advanced Research Manufacturing Centre in 2011.
His current research interests are in material performance issues such as corrosion, stress corrosion cracking, fatigue and fracture, particularly of the stainless steels and nickel base alloys employed in nuclear power plants. He is also particularly interested in understanding the implications of manufacturing on nuclear materials performance.
