Sir Harshad Kumar Dharamshi Hansraj Bhadeshia, (born 1953)  is a British FRS FREng FIMMM metallurgist and Tata Steel Professor of Metallurgy at the University of Cambridge.
Education and early life
Born in Kenya to Indian parents,
Harry Bhadeshia moved to the United Kingdom in the seventies and studied at the  City of London Polytechnic where he graduated with a Bachelor of Science degree in 1976. He joined the  University of Cambridge to work on the theory and significance of retained austenite in steels and obtained his PhD in 1980 supervised by David V. Edmonds.
 Career and research
Following his PhD, he worked as a
Science Research Council Research Fellow until 1981 and has been part of the academic staff at the University of Cambridge since then. He is the author of more than 650 published papers in the field of metallurgy  and several books.
    
In the 90s, he worked with
British Steel plc on a carbide-free, silicon-rich bainitic steel that was used for rails in the Channel Tunnel and later on a high-performance armour steel for the British  Ministry of Defence. In 2006, he was awarded the Bessemer Gold Medal by the  Institute of Materials, Minerals and Mining for "outstanding services to the Steel Industry". In November 2008, he was appointed the first Tata Steel Professor of Metallurgy  and he established and took the lead of the new "SKF University Technology Centre", in May 2009 between  SKF and the University of Cambridge to conduct research in the field of the physical metallurgy of bearing steels.
