Purdue Materials Engineering Professor Mysore A. Dayananda, wins Distinguished Teaching Award from ASMInternational
Former Purdue MSE Head, Alexander H. King, now, Director of the Critical Materials Institute, a U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Energy Innovation Hub at Ames Laboratory
Alexander H. King, Director of the Critical Materials Institute, a U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Energy Innovation Hub at Ames Laboratory, will deliver the TMS/ASM Joint Distinguished Lecture in Materials and Society, part of the Tuesday morning all-conference plenary session planned for Materials Science & Technology 2017 (MS&T17).
Head of Materials Engineering
Indianapolis, Rolls-Royce North America
Mary Lee Gambone is currently head of the Rolls-Royce Materials Engineering organization in Indianapolis and has worked in aerospace materials for more than 30 years. Since joining Rolls-Royce in 1998, she has had several roles, including Chief of Research and Technology Strategy and Manager of Critical Part Lifing. Her early career as a materials engineer was with the Allison Gas Turbine Division of General Motors and she enjoyed several years with the U.S. Air Force as Team Lead for metal matrix composites research in the Air Force Research Laboratory, Materials Directorate. Gambone earned a B.S. in metallurgical engineering from Purdue University, a M.S in materials engineering from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, and a Ph.D. from the University of Virginia in materials science.
Matthew Korey and Nelyan López Pérez receive Graduate Research Fellowship.
Mr. Korey was recently awarded a 3 year NSF GRF (https://www.nsfgrfp.org/) from the National Science Foundation to support his doctoral research. He will be working on sustainable polymer synthesis, polymeric composites, and additives for polymeric materials with his advisers Profs. John Howarter and Jeff Youngblood. Matthew joined the School of Materials Engineering at Purdue in 2015 after completing his BS degree in biomedical engineering from The Ohio State University.
Ms. Nelyan López Pérez has been awarded the 2016 National Institute of Justice Graduate Research Fellowship Program in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (NIJ GRF-STEM). With its support, she will study high performance fibers used in soft body armors, how they degrade during their lifetime and how their performance is affected by changes at smaller scales. Nelyan joined the Purdue’s School of Materials Engineering in 2014. She obtained her BS in Physics from the University
of Puerto Rico, Río Piedras campus.

DOE Funds Research with Team Including MSE's Professor Trumble On Making Energy-Efficient Sheet Metals
The team has shown a way to "peel" high silicon steel sheet from an ingot, enabling new alloys to be used for next generation electric motors. This work has been funded with $1.5 million by the Department of Energy.
Congratulations to Professor Wayne Chen on being awarded an Honorary Doctorate by Tampere University of Technology (TUT) in Finland! Professor Chen has a joint appointment in the Schools of Materials Engineering and Aeronautics and Astronautics at Purdue University.
