Principal Research Fellow - Ceramics, Sheffield Hallam University,

Dr Hywel Jones is an expert in engineering ceramics which can typically be found in body armour, replacement hip joints, bearings for space engines and oil & gas pumps etc. He is particularly interested in their use as body armour and as wear resistant parts.
He has founded a spin-out company, XeraCarb Ltd, to exploit MOD funded research on light-weight body armour.
