Dr Mitchell Sesso Lecturer in Mechanical Engineering, Engineering

Dr Mitchell Sesso is a Lecturer in the Department of Engineering at La Trobe University. Mitchell was awarded his Ph.D. in materials science at Swinburne University of Technology in 2016 after working as a research engineer in ceramics for defence applications. He completed his B.Eng.(Mech.)(Hon.) at Swinburne University of Technology in 2010. Mitchell’s research interests include; thermal and cold spray coatings, mechanical and fracture behaviour of ceramic- and ceramic matrix composite (CMC) materials, additive manufacturing of ceramics, quantifying complex 3-D surfaces, finite element modelling and process-property relationships, as well as advanced characterisation techniques using neutron and X-ray diffraction and imaging.
