Edmund Long

Edmund Long Dr. Edmund Long is a postdoctoral research associate in Professor Laurence Marks's group within the Department of Materials Science and Engineering at Northwestern University. His research interests are microstructural characterisation (in particular scanning/transmission electron microscopy and spectroscopy) and computational materials of corrosion-resistant alloys.

Kyoungdoc Kim

Kyoungdoc Kim Dr. Kyoungdoc Kim is a postdoctoral fellow in Prof. Peter W. Voorhees group at Northwestern University. Currently, Kyoungdoc’s research has focused on understanding the early stages of oxidation and corrosion of metal alloys.

Brendy Rincon Troconis

Brendy Troconis Dr. Brendy Rincon Troconis is a Postdoc of Materials Science and Engineering at University of Virginia working on different projects related to atmospheric corrosion of AA2024-T3 for aerospace application, dealloying of Cu for antibacterial application, pitting and hydrogen embrittlement of stainless steels compared to carbon steel for reinforced concrete application and hydrogen embrittlement of Fe and Ni alloys for submarine and reinforced concrete application. She got her B.S. in Chemical Engineering at Universidad del Zulia in Venezuela and her Ph.D. at Ohio State University on Materials Science and Engineering.

Xiaoxiang Yu

Xiaoxiang (Shawn) Yu Dr. Xiaoxiang Yu (Shawn) is a postdoctoral research associate in the department of Materials Science Engineering at Northwestern University. His research interests are micro structural characterization: scanning electron microscopy (SEM), transmission electron microscopy (TEM) and three-dimensional atom probe tomography (3D APT) Computational material science: density-functional theory (DFT), molecular dynamics simulation (MD), Monte Carlo method (MC), multi-scale modeling and crystal structure prediction.

Liang-Feng Huang
