News from 2017

Talia wins 2nd prize in Structural Materials research Category at the 2017 UoM Engineering Graduate Symposium

Following Kevin successful PhD thesis defense (May 2017), it was first Peng-Wei‘s turn to impress us (August 23rd) then Ellen (September 1st). Congratulations Dr Chu and Dr Solomon!

Kevin and Yan both started in their new positions (in Pittsburg, and Shanghai respectively). Ransom Stamps from Missouri S&T and Etienne Le Mire from the Ecole Centrale de Nantes spent a few months with us. It was a lot of fun to work with all of them and we will miss you greatly!

Iman just joined us as a post-doc researcher from Iowa State University. We are very excited to be working with him. 

We were at TMS in February (Ellen will be awarded the best 2016 TMS Light Metals Magnesium Best Paper – Student Award),  the Gordon Conference on High temperature Corrosion in July (Kathleen and Talia), the Gordon Conference on Physical Metallurgy also in July (Emmanuelle), the Environmental degradation in Materials in nuclear power systems in August  (Kevin), and Microscopy & Microanalysis also in August (Elaina, Li-Jen, Talia, Kathleen, Iman, and Emmanuelle).

We have a few new stories and papers in review we can’t wait to share with you!
