Profile

Martin Ansell is a Reader (Associate Professor) in Materials, specialising in cellulosic materials and polymers. His research includes the creep and fatigue of wood and natural fibre composites, the development of bonded-in technology for joints in timber structures and characterisation of polymers and composites for industrial applications.

Martin was awarded his degree in Materials Science from the University of Sussex before continuing to take a PhD in Solid State Physics at Chelsea College, University of London. He was awarded a Fellowship of the Institute of Wood Science (FIWSc) in 1986 and was President of Institute of Wood Science from 1994 to 1996. Martin was awarded a Fellowship of the Institute of Materials, Minerals and Mining (FIMMM) in 2002.

Martin joined the University of Bath as a Research Officer in 1976 and has since worked as a Lecturer and Senior Lecturer in Materials. He has worked as a Reader (Associate Professor) in the Department of Mechanical Engineering since 2006.
