About the Author

After gaining his PhD in 1953, Professor Smallman spent five years at the Atomic Energy Research

Establishment at Harwell before returning to the University of Birmingham, where he became Professor

of Physical Metallurgy in 1964 and Feeney Professor and Head of the Department of Physical

Metallurgy and Science of Materials in 1969. He subsequently became Head of the amalgamated

Department of Metallurgy and Materials (1981), Dean of the Faculty of Science and Engineering, and

the first Dean of the newly created Engineering Faculty in 1985. For five years he wasVice-Principal

of the University (1987-92).

He has held visiting professorship appointments at the University of Stanford, Berkeley, Pennsylvania

(USA), New SouthWales (Australia), Hong Kong and Cape Town, and has received Honorary

Doctorates from the University of Novi Sad (Yugoslavia), University ofWales and Cranfield University.

His research work has been recognized by the award of the Sir George Beilby Gold Medal of the

Royal Institute of Chemistry and Institute of Metals (1969), the Rosenhain Medal of the Institute of

Metals for contributions to Physical Metallurgy (1972), the Platinum Medal, the premier medal of

the Institute of Materials (1989), and the Acta Materialia Gold Medal (2004).

Hewas elected a Fellowof the Royal Society (1986), a Fellowof the RoyalAcademy of Engineering

(1990), a Foreign Associate of the United States National Academy of Engineering (2005), and

appointed a Commander of the British Empire (CBE) in 1992. A former Council Member of the

Science and Engineering Research Council, he has been Vice-President of the Institute of Materials

and President of the Federated European Materials Societies. Since retirement he has been academic

consultant for a number of institutions both in the UK and overseas.

Professor Ngan obtained his PhD on electron microscopy of intermetallics in 1992 at the University

of Birmingham, under the supervision of Professor Ray Smallman and Professor Ian Jones. He then

carried out postdoctoral research at Oxford University on materials simulations under the supervision

of Professor David Pettifor. In 1993, he returned to the University of Hong Kong as a Lecturer in

Materials Science and Solid Mechanics, at the Department of Mechanical Engineering. In 2003,

he became Senior Lecturer and in 2006 Professor. His research interests include dislocation theory,

electron microscopy of materials and, more recently, nanomechanics. He has published over 120

refereed papers, mostly in international journals. He received a number of awards, including the

Williamson Prize (for being the top Engineering student in his undergraduate studies at the University

of Hong Kong), Thomas Turner Research Prize (for the quality of his PhD thesis at the University of

Birmingham), Outstanding Young Researcher Award at the University of Hong Kong, and in 2007

was awarded the Rosenhain Medal of the Institute of Materials, Minerals and Mining. He also held

visiting professorship appointments at Nanjing University and the Central Iron and Steel Research

Institute in Beijing, and in 2003, he was also awarded the Universitas 21 Fellowship to visit the

University of Auckland. He is active in conference organization and journal editorial work.
