Alessandra arrived in November 2012 to start her PhD before switching to part-time two years later when she moved back to Italy to take on a permanent technical position at the University of Bologna. On Friday January 18, 2019 Alessandra successfully defended her thesis in front of her examiners, Professor Vasileios Koutsos (University of Edinburgh) and Dr Fred Claeyssens of our Department of Materials Science and Engineering.
