Our People

Dr Bruce Philip

Technology Transfer Fellow

Bruce developed a keen interest in materials through his experience of working across a diverse range of industries, including the construction, agricultural and automotive sectors, both in the UK and abroad. This inspired him to return to education to study Materials Engineering, where he attained a first class honours degree followed by an industry lead doctorate on the application of functional, photovoltaic coatings to metal substrates.

After graduating Bruce worked in the process development group within Tata Steel Strip Products, on a number of projects relating to process optimisation, across the South Wales area.

He joined the SPECIFIC group in 2012, to pursue his ambition for reducing energy in the built environment. Drawing on his knowledge of industrial application processes, the construction industry, and technical understanding of materials, he now leads a project investigating the application of conductive coatings, to develop a new range of heated, structural building elements.
