I started as a Ph.D. Student with Dr. Arroyave’s Group in Fall 2017, and have been working on the computational design of steel materials using thermodynamics and information-fusion techniques. Side projects have extended into the use of machine learning techniques for quantification of microstructures.
Before Starting my Ph.D. I worked in materials research and development at Mintek in South Africa. Some of my focus areas while working there was the development of more corrosion and oxidation resistant FeAl alloys, colored gold and platinum jewelry alloys and metal spray forming.
