Dr. Ilana Timokhina is a Senior Research Academic at the Institute for Frontier Materials, Deakin University, Australia. 

Dr Timokhina has 5 years’ experience in the semiconductor thin films area and over 15 years’ experience in physical metallurgy of metals and alloys. Her work involved conceiving and managing research programs of various degrees of complexity. Dr Timokhina’s key research areas are development of complex advanced high strength multiphase steels to achieve optimum material performance (two “Best Paper” awards related to this work), nano-structural materials with balanced strength and ductility produced through different severe plastic deformation processes and subsequent heat treatment, fundamental understanding of strengthening mechanisms in metals, composite and upcycling materials. She uses correlative microscopy i.e. Scanning, Transmission, Ion Beam, Electron Backscattering Electron microscopy, Atom Probe Tomography, Neutron and X-Ray diffraction as the main approach to solve scientific problems. Dr Timokhina has published more than 130 scientific papers (1792 citations, h-index 23), two book chapters, was invited speaker at many international conferences and is a reviewer for a number of international journals and grant schemes.
