Philip John Withers FREng FRS[10] is a Professor of Materials Science in the Materials Science Centre at the University of Manchester.[11][12]

Education

Withers was educated at the University of Cambridge where he was awarded a PhD in the metallurgy of Metal Matrix Composites (MMCs) in 1988.[13]

Career and research

Following his PhD, Withers was appointed a lecturer at Cambridge before being appointed Professor at the University of Manchester in 1998. His research investigates the application of advanced techniques to follow the behaviour of engineering and natural materials in real time and in 3D.[11][14][15]

In 2008 Withers set up the Henry Moseley Manchester X-ray Imaging Facility (MXIF),[16] which has extensive suites of 3D X-ray Imaging facilities. In 2012, Withers became the inaugural Director of the BP International Centre for Advanced Materials (ICAM) aimed understanding and developing materials across the energy industry.[17] With Bill Clyne, he is a co-author of the text book An Introduction to Metal Matrix Composites.[18] His research has been funded by the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC).[19]

Awards and honours

Withers was elected a Fellow of the Royal Academy of Engineering (FREng) in 2005 and a Fellow of the Royal Society (FRS) in 2016.[10][20] In 2014, the University of Manchester was awarded the Queen's Anniversary Prize, recognising Withers work at the Manchester X-ray Imaging Facility.
