Emmanuel is currently studying for his PhD and is a research associate acting between Safinah, Northumbria University and a consortium of leading industrial companies.

This project is investigating issues of marine coatings’ embrittlement in Water Ballast Tanks (WBTs) aiming at improvement in formulations thus prolonging the coating life in service and enhancing structural integrity in ships.

It is also aimed at developing a reliable test method for assessing the potential for embrittlement with age of coating.
