Meet Andrew Robinson

Dr Andrew Robinson, Principal Experimental Officer at the University of Southampton’s Testing and Structures Research Laboratory (TSRL), is a specialist in mechanical testing and imaging techniques.

Having completed a PhD in experimental mechanics, Andrew worked for Lloyd’s Register on failure analysis and mechanical testing before joining the TSRL. With 15 years’ experience in this field of engineering, he has undertaken tests on countless material types for a wide range of sectors, including civil, aerospace and maritime engineering.

Andrew works with us on our clients’ mechanical testing projects, using his extensive knowledge of the TSRL’s cutting-edge facilities to program the rigs and validate test set-ups. He is also our go-to person for guidance on more complex or unusual mechanical testing requirements.
