I am a 4 th year PhD in materials science and engineering at Carnegie Mellon graduating in 2016. Before this, I was a mechanical engineer with Honors from Brigham Young University. My PhD thesis work focuses on evaluation of high strength metallic microstructure and linking it to its mechanical performances. During my undergraduate and graduate career, I have gained a broad range of experiences from product conceptualization to design to development to performance. I have focused on failure analysis of nanocomposite and design, fabrication and characterization of 3D printed superalloy heat exchanger. Major technical skills I have gained are microscopy such as SEM, EBSD, TEM and ASTAR; modeling and programming. Besides this, I have experiences mentoring and supervising undergraduate and graduate students and working with cross-functional teams both nationally and internationally. I currently serve as a co-chair for Society of Women Engineers (SWE) and chair for graduate student organization at CMU.
