Presentation Title MC-1: Seeking Broader Applications of Materials Science

On-Site Speaker (Planned) Dalong Zhang
Abstract Scope My name is Dalong Zhang. I am a PhD student in Materials Science at UC Davis since September 2011, and I will graduate by March 2016. Supervised by Prof. Enrique Lavernia and Prof. Subhash Mahajan, I have been working on understanding the deformation mechanisms of HCP Mg and its alloys. Therefore, microscopy and crystallography have been two important tools for me to study the intrinsic anisotropy in HCP materials. In addition to utilizing state-of-the-art EBSD, high resolution TEM, and in-situ TEM techniques, I also trained myself in the “lost art” of two-beam/weak-beam TEM for identifying dislocations. With various techniques in my “toolbox”, I could characterize the materials from a multi-scale perspective, gather truly “representative” data, and hence understand the behavior of bulk materials better. After my PhD, I am eager to explore broader applications of my skill-sets, and seek new challenges to learn more, in either academia or industry.
