Eric Tam

Senior Research Engineer at Chalmers, Industrial and Materials Science, Materials and manufacture

Eric Tam graduated as a PhD at Materials- and manufacturing in September 2011 and is now a research engineer in the department. His major research areas include PVD coatings technology, materials characterization, and occupational health issue related to manufacturing technology. He is now taking part in several industrial-related projects and closely collaborating with the industrial and academic partners. The goal of these researches is to build-up academic-industrial relations and provides R&D support to the industrial parties from a practical level and to an advanced research level. Eric contributes to the environmental work by managing chemicals and risk assessments at the department.
