  • YEAR ENROLLED: Fall 2010
  • RESEARCH GROUP: Dr. Kurt R. Hebert
  • LOCATION: Sweeney Hall
  • RESEARCH FOCUS: My research and course work have focused on theoretical, computational and experimental aspects of stress induced plastic flow associated with electrochemical reactions. My doctoral work revealed the role of stress and plastic flow on the surface instability during both growth of porous anodic oxide (PAO) films and stress-corrosion cracking (SCC) on aluminum.
