Dr. B. Stiven Puentes Rodriguez successfully completes his PhD!

Congratulations to Dr. B. Stiven Puentes Rodriguez on successfully completing his PhD! Dr. Puentes was advised by Professor Trumble, and his research focused on developing a new electrical steel alloy with outstanding magnetic properties and improved workability for electrical motors. Additionally, he collaborated in a cross-functional team to scale-up a technique called hybrid cutting extrusion (HCE) which is useful to produce strips of low workability alloys via machining. Dr. Puentes has accepted a position with LAM Research in Fremont, CA.
