Meelad Ranaiefar received his B.S. in Mechanical Engineering from Texas A&M and is now pursuing a Ph.D in Materials Science and Engineering. His current work involves modeling the contributing effect of differential evaporation on an additively manufactured part, consisting of nickel, titanium, niobium, or aluminum material. This is because differential evaporation can be seen as a negative side effect in the additive manufacturing process, leading to undesired changes in the microstructure of a material, but, through modeling and greater understanding, it can be used to control location specific microstructure and properties in materials.
