Bruno Felipe Andrade Bezerra is a PhD Candidate with SEAM at Swinburne University of Technology. Bruno’s desire to work with coatings and corrosion problems started during his studies at the University of Rio Grande do Sul in Brazil, where he was also awarded a Master of Science and Technology of Materials. Bruno first started to work with HVOF coatings in Brazil, continuing his studies and experience with an internship in Belgium at OCAS, working with maraging steels. After successfully completing his undergraduate studies Bruno decided to further study the area of coatings and their corrosion problems. He explored organic coatings during his master studies which have brought him to Australia to further his research at Swinburne.
