Patrick Burr

University of New South Wales, Australia

Patrick Burr is an ARC Industry Fellow and an Associate Professor in Nuclear Materials at the University of New South Wales, Sydney. He obtained his PhD in computational materials engineering from Imperial College London (2015). His research focusses on understanding the degradation mechanisms of materials used in demanding energy applications. He achieves this using atomic-scale simulations, often coupled with advanced experimental methods. He has authored 80+ book chapters, articles, and patents on nuclear materials, hydrogen-tolerant materials, materials for photovoltaics, and new methods for modelling defects and radiation damage.
