Dr Fletcher's research interests are in engineering design and performance of materials under extreme loading. He is a graduate of Leeds University and was awarded a PhD in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Sheffield. Dr Fletcher has collaborated with the Japanese Railway Technical Research Institute (RTRI), Tokyo, on modelling crack growth in rail steel, and has conduced research on EU and industrially funded projects with partners including Corus, DeltaRail, Tubelines and the Rail Safety and Standards Board. EPSRC funded research includes the area of Resilient Design, developing approaches to the design of crowded places that may be subject to terrorist attack. Research prizes have included the Institution of Mechanical Engineers Tribology Trust, Tribology Bronze Medal, 2000, the Institution of Mechanical Engineers Railway Division, TA Steward-Dyer / F H Trevithick Prize, 2005, and a Best Paper prize at the World Congress on Railway Research, Korea, 2008.

Roger Lewis became a lecturer in the Department in 2002 and was promoted to Senior Lecturer in 2006. He graduated from the University of Sheffield in 1996 with an MEng in Mechanical Engineering and continued to work at Sheffield towards a PhD in the Tribology Research Group. He then had posts as a Research Associate and Teaching Fellow in the Department.
In 2001 he was awarded the Tribology Trust Bronze Medal and in 2003 received a Brian Mercer Award for Innovation from the Royal Society. He is a Chartered Engineer and a Fellow of the Institution of Mechanical Engineers. He is currently a member of the IMechE Tribology Group and Railway Division Young Members committees.

Dr Alma Hodzic has taught and performed research in the areas of Materials and Manufacturing Processes, Mechanical Engineering Design, Composite Materials and Engineering Management since 1997. Her research includes design of better interfaces between all types of reinforcing fibres and corresponding matrices, with utilization of new research tools in nanotechnology. Dispersion of nanoparticles in advanced polymer matrices, environmental degradation of composites, compression strength improvement and design of hybrid composites are some of the projects that her students are currently undertaking. The main focus behind multidisciplinary projects of her team is to improve the environment by replacing technologies with better eco-alternatives.
