My name is Enrique Alabort

Doctor of Engineering, University of Oxford
Co-founder, Alloyed

About me

I'm currently part of Alloyed, where I manage the company's activites and strategy in North America an Japan. I co-founded Alloyed (previously OxMet Technologies) in 2017 with a group of world-class scientists from the University of Oxford. Before that, I was a Senior Research Fellow in that same University — where I was also awarded an Engineering Doctoral Degree in 2015.

When I'm not thinking about engineering, I make photos. Mostly landscape and street photography. I also enjoy running, cycling, and outdoor sports. Bragging rights here.

Linkedin will tell you more about my career. My scientific work can be found in ResearchGate and Google Scholar. Patents here. If you want to get in touch, please send me an email.
