Congratulations to our undergraduate researcher Lauren Wewer on winning the best poster award during the ASM Young Members Night Poster Competition

We are very proud of our undergraduate researcher, Lauren Wewer, who just received the best poster award during the the American Society for Metals (ASM) Young Members Night Poster Competition. Lauren worked with us for one year during her senior study after taking Dr. Xiong's thermodynamic course. She performed the MASCRO summer research intern on graded alloy additive manufacturing. During the ASM Young Members Night, she presented her research results generated from the MASCRO summer research internship. The poster was under blind judging. Lauren's poster: Alloy Design by Additive Manufacturing for Power Plants with High Energy Efficiency, is the one outcompeted other students from both Pitt and Carnegie Mellon University in the undergraduate category. Lauren will continue her graduate study in our department for functional materials, and we are sure that she will keep up the good work during her graduate research.


Undergraduate researcher Daozheng Li gave his very first conference presentation at the TMS 2022

Mr. Daozheng Li and Prof. Wei Xiong attended the TMS conference from Feb 27 to March 3, Anaheim, California. Mr. Daozheng gave his first academic presentation on the effort printing metal composite of 316L and 718. This is the work that he performed using his spare time during his junior year undergraduate study. Impressive! Prof. Xiong gave three talks, two are invited ones. One is about additive manufacturing alloy design, which was arranged as the first opening talk for additive manufacturing symposium of the TMS conference, the 2nd one is about CALPHAD modeling of molten salt database for nuclear power plant, and the 3rd one is about the surface modification of additive manufacturing alloys.
