Professor Elena Pereloma joined the University of Wollongong in January 2007 as a Professor of Physical Metallurgy and Director of BlueScope Steel Metallurgy Centre having previously been at Monash University, Melbourne (1995-2006), Queen’s University, Canada (1993-1995) and Institute for Metal Physics, National Academy of Sciences, Ukraine (1987-1992). From October 2011, she is a Founding Director of the UOW Electron Microscopy Centre. Professor Pereloma is internationally recognised expert in physical metallurgy of metals and alloys. She is also an expert in application of advanced experimental techniques, such as atom probe tomography and electron microscopy, to study solid state phase transformations, deformation and annealing processes. Professor Pereloma has published nearly 200 scientific papers, was editor of two peer-reviewed conference proceedings and book “Phase transformations in steels”, and was invited and keynote speaker at numerous international conferences. She is currently on the Editorial Board for the Journal of Metallurgy and La Metallurgia Italiana, on the Advisory Board of ISIJ International, as well as a reviewer for a number of international journals and international grant bodies.
