Year Joined Homerton: 

Miles is a Fellow, Lecturer and Director of Studies in Engineering at Homerton College. He completed his PhD at Jesus College, where he was later appointed as Director of Studies for Natural Sciences (Materials Science). Prior to his arrival at Cambridge, Miles worked on the design of the Royal Navy’s Dreadnought Class nuclear-powered ballistic missile submarines. This work covered a wide range of topics within nuclear plant design and operation, principally reactor physics, materials science and manufacturing. His published works cover the design of nanostructured materials, from quantum mechanics to thermokinetics, radiation damage modelling, hydrogen embrittlement, and the engineering and probabilistic safety assessment of integral and passive small modular reactors.

Miles lectures Part III Nuclear Materials within the Department of Materials Science and Metallurgy, and the Nuclear Safety and Nuclear Materials modules within the Engineering Department’s MPhil in Nuclear Energy. Miles often has a broad range of industrially sponsored projects in the field of nuclear energy for undergraduate and postgraduate students, at both PhD and masters level, and welcomes any prospective candidates to contact him directly.
