Patrick Grant holds the Cookson Chair of Materials at Oxford University. His research interests concern developing understanding of the complex physics underlying materials processing in order to manipulate microstructure and properties, extract maximum economic benefit and impose process control. From 1999 to 2004, he was Director of the Oxford Centre for Advanced Materials and Composites (OCAMAC), which helps to coordinate industrial materials related research across Oxford University, and was Director of the Transport node of the Materials Knowledge Transfer Network, becoming Executive Director in 2007. He was a member of the 2008 Research Assessment Exercise panel for Materials, and is a member of the Materials & Structures National Technical Committee and EPSRC's Fusion Advisory Board.
