Dr Creighton has a background in the field of composites processing, characterisation and sandwich structures. She completed her PhD in collaboration with Eurocopter in the area of out-of-autoclave resin infusion processes for textile preforms and flow modelling in 2011. The research involved modelling-based cure kinetics characterisation and process parameter optimisation.
Her current research interests lie in the fundamental understanding of the effect of the carbon fibre production process on the fibre morphology and resulting properties, low-cost manufacture of carbon fibre and the influence of fibre sizing on the composite performance.
