Jennifer Bustillos

Jennifer Bustillos, a Ph.D. student working with Assistant Professor Atieh Moridi in the Lab for Advanced Materials and Manufacturing, was recently selected to receive the 2020-2021 Knight@KIC Engineering Graduate Fellowship. The fellowship is funded by the Kavali Institute  at Cornell for Nanoscale Science.

Bustillos’ research sits at the interface of materials science and mechanics of advanced manufactured metals. Her research will combine high resolution TEM and nanobeam electron diffraction techniques to enable the identification of crucial deformations/defect interactions in engineered duplex microstructures for additive manufactured Ti alloys. This work will pave the way towards the design of alloys with concurrent improvement in strength and ductility not attainable via conventional processes.
