Dr. Ali Gholinia is a Research Fellow working in the Department of Materials at the University of Manchester. He obtained his PhD from Materials Science Centre at the University of Manchester. After post-doctoral positions at the University of Manchester in UK and TU-Delft in the Netherlands, he worked at HKL and Oxford Instruments in Denmark on development of electron backscatter diffraction (EBSD) technique and its applications, before taking up his current position in Manchester.
His expertise include materials characterisation and processing. He has been working with in the field of electron microscopy for over 20 years. His materials characterisation expertise include microstructure and phase analysis using scanning electron microscopy (SEM), focused ion beam (FIB) and electron backscatter diffraction (EBSD). His research focus is on 3D correlative and multi-modal microstructure characterisation of materials between X-ray computed tomography and serial sectioning techniques in SEM. Furthermore, he is interested in linking materials microstructure and mechanical properties using in-situ tensile deformation in SEM.
