Chloe Fisher

Chloe graduated with a BSc in Chemistry from the University of Sheffield in 2013. Following this she started working for the Cutlery and Allied Trade Research Association (CATRA) in Sheffield as a materials technologist, testing kitchenware in accordance with British and international testing standards. She was sponsored by CATRA to do a Master's degree at the University of Leeds in Materials Science and Engineering and in 2016 completed the MSc with distinction. The third semester of the MSc involved conducting a research project, on the topic of lead-free piezoelectric ceramics with Professor Andrew Bell.

After completing another year at CATRA, Chloe began a PhD at the University of Leeds with Professor Bell in 2017, sponsored by the EPSRC and Thales UK. Her PhD project is researching novel lead-free piezoelectric ceramics for sonar transducer application. In the first year of her PhD, Chloe entered the Institute's Young Persons' Lecture Competition (YPLC) and came third at the UK final, presenting on the use of stainless steels in kitchen knives from her experience working at CATRA. This put her in touch with the Institute's Young Members' Committee.

Outside work, Chloe enjoys spending time with family and friends, travelling and keeping fit, joining a martial arts gym in Leeds and taking kickboxing classes.
