Doctor of Philosophy in Materials Science, Rice University, Houston, Texas
Bachelor of Science in Metallurgical and Materials Science Engineering, University of Texas at El Paso, Texas
programs are focused on developing an understanding of advanced
composite material systems for use in extreme environments.
research program focuses on processing ultra-high temperature ceramic
(UHTC) multilayer coatings for use as advanced thermal protection
systems in next generation aerospace vehicles.
research program focuses on developing bulk multifunctional
high-temperature ceramic nanocomposites reinforced with single-walled
carbon nanotubes for enhanced toughness in ceramics that also posses
novel electrical and thermal properties over monolithic ceramic
materials, which make them great thermal management materials and
electrical conductors at temperature.
research program focuses on materials for solar and energy applications.
In collaboration with Sandia National Laboratories, we are developing
advanced nanocomposites of iron oxide and zirconia for use as high
temperature hydrogen generation materials.
have interest in developing advanced solid-oxide fuel cell (SOFC)
materials, especially glass sealant materials for more reliable SOFCs.
The UA and Sandia National Laboratories fund my current research
programs at the University of Arizona.
