Tanya Mangoma.jpg

Tanya Mangoma obtained her integrated Masters in Materials Science and Engineering from the University of Manchester in 2017. As part of her studies, she undertook a year-long industrial placement where she focused on characterisation of electro-mechanical losses during the manufacture of piezoelectric actuators. She also carried out research on the development of microscope-based Digital Image Correlation as a tool for direct measurement of shear piezoelectric properties. For her final year dissertation, Tanya worked on further developing emerging Lab based X-ray tomographic techniques which have elemental mapping capabilities. She joined the Centre for Doctoral Training in Ultra Precision Engineering at the University of Cambridge in October 2017. As part of her training, Tanya is undertaking a 5 month project on Additive manufacturing of Neuromorphic devices.
