Phil Jackson holds a BSc Hons in Chemistry and a PhD in Thermodynamics, both gained at Leicester University. Owing to over twenty years of experience, Phil’s areas of expertise lie in glass chemistry, novel shaping processes and in the practical control of powder suspensions.
Moving from a focus on glaze and ceramic powder processing for the traditional ceramic industry in the early part of his career, Phil transferred his expertise to advanced ceramic process issues, including control of nano-suspensions and precipitation processes for electronics applications.
More recently Phil has focused on applications in the medical devices sector and in particular to the development of implanted structures, surgical instrumentation and implant/anti-bacterial coatings.
Phil is also a Technology Translator for the Materials KTN, identifying powder needs in various industries and helping to connect companies and universities with complementary skills.
