Granta Management Team

Dr Will Marsden

Director, Industry Relations

Will's career within the aerospace materials community began with his first position as a Rolls-Royce research engineer in 1989. At post-doctorate level, he specialized in material model formulations that describe composite damage mechanisms within finite element codes. He continued work in this area at DERA, the research agency of the UK Ministry of Defense, and then managed the composites group for a commercial provider of finite element software. Will joined Granta in 2001, since when he has been particularly closely involved in driving development of products that support the aerospace, defense, and energy sectors. He has coordinated the work of the Material Data Management Consortium (MDMC), an industry collaboration that helps to define and implement best practice. Will has a BSc in Materials Engineering and PhD in composites fracture mechanics from the University of Surrey.
