Professor Dmitry Eskin

Gardiner Building 002a


Professor Dmitry Eskin (1963) joined Brunel University and BCAST in January 2011. He received his Engineering and PhD degrees in Russia and worked in Russian Academy of Sciences (1988–1999). Since 1999, he was a Fellow in Materials innovation institute and since 2008 also an Associate Professor in Delft University of Technology (The Netherlands). He also held positions of Guest Professor at Tomsk State University (Russia) (2014-2021), TMS representative on the MMT joint board, Editor of Journal of Alloys and Compounds (2012-2022), and is currently a Subject Editor of JOM, Editorial Board member of Ultrasonics Sonochemistry, Key Reader for Metallurgical and Materials Transactions A, and Series Editor at CRC Press. Prof. Eskin is a well-known specialist in physical metallurgy and solidification processing of light alloys, author and co-author of more than 350 scientific papers, 5 patents and 7 monographs. Current interests include fundamentals of continuous casting, effects of external fields (incl. ultrasound) on solidification, and composite materials. Prof. Eskin is a recipient of Warren Peterson Cast Shop Technology for Aluminum Production Award (2011, 2013), Aluminum Technology Award (2013) from TMS (USA) and Medeleev Medal (2018) from Tomsk State University (Russia).
