Alan   Leacock

Dr Alan Leacock Joined the School of Engineering in 2000; founding the Advanced Sheet Metal Forming (AMFOR) Group at Ulster University in 2004.  Alan's teaching interests include Statics and Strength of Materials, Plasticity and Sheet Metal Forming.

As a reader in advanced metal forming based at Ulster University, Alan implements solutions for a diverse range of low volume sheet metal forming industries manufacturing everything from aircraft to garage doors.  Working cooperatively using a lean innovation approach Alan minimises the financial risk of project partners while optimising, improving and creating sheet metal forming products and processes.  Alan's co-creation approach ensures accelerated implementation of solutions for value chain migration that increases margin and market share.

Alan is also an EPSRC High Value Manufacturing Catapult Fellow working with the Advanced Forming Research Centre at the University of Strathclyde.
