Helen obtained a Bachelors degree in Physical Natural Sciences from the University of Cambridge in 2005 specialising in Materials Science and Metallurgy. She went on to obtain a MSci in 2006 and PhD in 2009 in Materials Science and Metallurgy also at the University of Cambridge. Helen’s PhD focussed on ceramic coatings and in particular their use in biomedical applications.
Helen joined Burgoynes in 2010 and has been based in the firm’s London office since then. Since joining the partnership she has been continuously engaged in the detailed investigation of mechanical failures, materials failures and fracture analysis.
Investigations to date have included engineering component failures and general materials failures (metals, plastics, composites, textiles) including fatigue failures, overload failures and corrosion failures. Helen has investigated incidents involving domestic and industrial plumbing installations, pressurised pipework and fittings, structural collapse, defective design, deficient installation and manufacturing defects.
