Let the students ask questions

Cameron Volders Cameron Volders is in his fourth year at the University of Virginia and is earning his PhD in Materials Science & Engineering. He has been on the MURI project for the entirety of his stint at UVA. He earned two Bachelor's degrees in Physics and Chemistry before arriving at UVA from Saginaw Valley State University.

Alex Lin Alex Lin is currently a PhD student in Materials Science and Engineering at Northwestern University. His research interests lie in understanding early stage oxidation with TEM and spectroscopic characterizations. In the past, he has worked on developing grain boundary segregation models in corroded CoCrMo hip replacement alloys.

Katie Lutton Katie Lutton is currently a PhD student in chemical engineering at the University of Virginia. She has been working on the hydrogen embrittlement of stainless steels in marine environments. She plans on continuing in Materials Science for a Ph.D. after graduating in May.

Rohit Ramanathan Rohit Ramanathan is a third year Ph.D. student in the Voorhees Research Group at Northwestern University. His research is focused on developing mean field models for simulating the nucleation and growth of oxide islands during the initial stages of the oxidation of Ni and NiCr alloys.

Matthew Taylor Matthew Taylor works in the Perepezko group synthesizing the alloys used across the MURI program and studying the early stages of oxidation.

Evan Zeitchick Evan Zeitchick is a graduate student at the University of Wisconsin - Madison in the Materials Science and Engineering department. His research is focused on understanding the initial stages of high-temperature oxidation of Nickel-based alloys (Ni-Cr-Al systems). Evan received his bachelors degree from the Thayer School of Engineering at Dartmouth College where his research interests included the mechanical properties of spinodal alloys and the characterization of magnetic iron nano-particles.
