Minh-Son Pham, as known as Son Pham, is an Academic and Independent Research Fellow in Engineering Alloys at Imperial College London. Previously, he was a Research Associate at Carnegie Mellon University (shortly at University of Maryland College Park), was located at National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) as a Guest Researcher from Jan. 2013 to Dec. 2015. He obtained a Doctor of Science Degree from the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology (ETH) Zurich in 2013. His thesis was honoured with the ETH Medal 2013 for excellent intellectual merit. 

He is currently the principal investigator of a research group in Novel Manufacturing of Metals and Alloys at the Imperial College London. Prospective students who want to work in additive manufacturing, microstructures, constitutive modelling, mechanical performance, please do not hesitate to contact him at son.pham@imperial.ac.uk
