Let the students ask questions

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.

Quentin Sherman Quentin Sherman is a MatSci PhD student at Northwestern University working in the Voorhees Research Group. His research focuses on developing multi-scale phase field models of oxide growth that can predict the complex morphological evolution of mesoscale oxide films. In the past he has studied the morphological evolution of catalytic nanoparticles in solid oxide fuel cells.

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.
