New faculty members expand department's capacity
The Department of Materials Science and Engineering have launched a new academic year with six new faculty members, helping to build capacity in critical areas.
Four faculty members joined the department in August.
Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering, will help the department and Ohio State’s Center for Electron Microscopy and Analysis (CEMAS) increase their capacity in energy storage and conversion. Her research combines smart design, synthesis, novel local structure probes, and functional testing of nanostructured materials to understand how structural changes at the atomic scape propagate to functional performance. She was most recently a University of California President’s Postdoctoral Fellow and an Ellings Prize Fellow at the University of California – Santa Barbara.

Doan-Nguen, who has a joint appointment in the
will officially join the department after service in an adjunct capacity. He will initiate the development of a Center for Aging Physical Systems at Ohio State while continuing his work as vice president of DNV GL, a firm that enables organizations to advanced the safety and sustainability of their businesses. He has extensive expertise in the area of corrosion of metals, with demonstrated leadership in the development of risk management for corroding systems, safe storage of nuclear waste, and the safe and sustainable use of materials and sensors to monitor degradation.
