Ashley and Greg performed summer research at Boeing Seattle
Three lab members present their research at AIAA SciTech Forum
Estefania Bohorquez, Sanjida Jahan, and Lin Rossmann each presented a technical paper at the American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics (AIAA) SciTech Forum conference in Kissimmee, held January 8-12. Estefania presented her topic, “Investigation of the Effects of CMAS Infiltration on EB-PVD 7% Yttria-Stabilized Zirconia via Raman Spectroscopy.” Sanjida presented “Effect of Functionalization on Mechanical Properties of Hybrid Carbon Fiber Reinforced Polymer (HCFRP) Composites Using Piezospectroscopy.” Lin presented “Method for Conducting In-Situ High Temperature DIC with Simultaneous Synchrotron Measurements under Thermomechanical Load.” All three are first authors.
SciTech is a significant conference in the aerospace industry with many opportunities valuable to students. In addition to presenting their research, the students attended talks and participated in networking and career-development activities.
Lin’s favorite development event was the speed mentoring session, in which senior members of the aerospace community rotated among small groups of students. “I loved getting to talk to people from very different areas of the aerospace industry. My favorite piece of advice was that your career is not linear, and you should not be afraid to explore directions that don’t seem strictly related.”
