Professor Adam Clare
Professor Adam Clare joined the University of Nottingham as a Lecturer in 2010 and since then has undertaken Fellowships at the University of Tokyo, Rolls-Royce and the High Value Catapults (AMRC/MTC). Adam leads a team of 20 researchers and PhD students who are addressing a range of research challenges. To date they have produced over 100 peer reviewed technical papers, numerous patents and regularly work at international conferences.
Alongside his research, Adam is the Director of and Scientific Advisor to Texture Jet Ltd (a University spin out company), the Vice President of the Association of Industrial Laser Users and an Associate Member of the International Academy for Production Engineering (CIRP). He also holds Editorial roles with the Journal of Materials Processing Technology (subject editor), Precision Engineering (associate editor), Manufacturing Letters (Editorial board) and International Journal of Machine Tools and Manufacture (reviewing committee).
Adam’s research focuses on the use of non-traditional manufacturing methods to arrive at net shape while inducing favorable material properties and generating new surfaces on engineering components. He is particularly interested in developing new manufacturing methods and materials for use in the high value manufacturing sectors including aerospace and biomedical engineering.
