After undertaking an apprenticeship at a paper making machinery company, Graham studied Mechanical Engineering at the University of Manchester. His 3rd year project during the BEng was on modelling the irradiation-induced changes in nuclear grade graphite. Upon completion of the undergraduate degree, he took the opportunity to continue this research in the form of an EngD at the University of Manchester.

As a PDRA, Graham worked on the microstructural modelling of nuclear graphite for both the UKs existing nuclear reactors and the next generation of nuclear reactors. His work focused upon using microstructural information and experimental data to develop models and increase understanding of the irradiation-induced changes in graphite.
