Fionn Dunne is Chair in Micromechanics. Prior to coming to Imperial in 2012, he was Professor of Engineering Science at Oxford University. Current research is in micromechanics and the fundamentals of deformation and failure particularly relating to hexagonal polycrystal materials. Current areas of research include computational crystal plasticity, fatigue crack nucleation, texture and dislocation structure development and polycrystal sonics for NDE.

He is Associate Editor of Philosophical Magazine and co-author of Introduction to Computational Plasticity, OUP, 2005. He is a consultant to Rolls-Royce, a member of their Core Materials Working Group and was a Royal Society Industry Fellow in 05/06 spent with Rolls-Royce. He was elected a Fellow of the Royal Academy of Engineering in 2010.
