Dr Kathryn Jackson is Programme Lead in Manufacturing Technology at the Advanced Manufacturing Research Centre (AMRC) at the University of Sheffield. Prior to her current role, Kathryn worked at the Nuclear AMRC as a Technology Researcher, leading a variety of manufacturing research projects including acoustic emissions in machining, tool endurance in drilling, analysis of welding and cladding processes and measurement systems uncertainty analysis. Kathryn led the Nuclear AMRC’s application to an Athena SWAN bronze award in 2016, and continues to lead the team towards the silver award. Prior to working at the Nuclear AMRC, Kathryn was employed as a Technologist at the National Metals Technology Centre (NAMTEC) where she carried out consultancy for the UK’s metals industry, with a particularly strong focus on materials and technologies of power generation. At NAMTEC, Kathryn co-ordinated the Titanium Information Group and the Metals and Alloys group of the Materials KTN. She was a member of the IOM3 High Temperature Materials Committee and the Materials UK Energy Materials Working Group.
