New Graduate Research Assistant Joins Lab

The Alloy Design and Development Lab is pleased to welcome Alec Mangan to the lab. Alec will pursue graduate studies under Dr. Dan Thoma with a focus on physical signatures of additively manufactured components, aiming to develop a deeper understanding of how parts will ultimately perform in a service environment. Alec completed his undergraduate studies in physics at Iowa State University of Science and Technology in 2019, and previously worked for Boeing, NASA, and Ames National Laboratory. Welcome, Alec!
