Dr. Thomas Dorin

Senior Research Fellow - Group leader of the Aluminium Research Group
Deakin University


Dr Dorin joined the Institute for Frontier Materials (Deakin University, Australia) in 2014. His research is focused on the development of innovative strategies to better understand, optimise and control an alloy’s microstructure to reach optimal bulk properties for specific applications. One of his particular interests is gaining a better understanding of precipitation mechanisms and quantifying the relationship between precipitates and strength. Dr Dorin’s current research focuses on understanding the interactions between scandium and other alloying elements in age-hardenable aluminium alloys.
