Our own Genevieve Lee, graduate student working for CDME, took top honors for her poster entered into the Best Poster Competition at the 146th Annual TMS Meeting and Exhibition.

Genevieve submitted her abstract to TMS (The Minerals, Metals and Materials Society) and was notified that her work was accepted for presentation at the annual event. The conference unites experts, students and exhibitors to exchange ideas about minerals, metals and materials. It was held in San Diego, CA, Februbary 27-March 2. 

In her debut appearance at the TMS Meeting and Exhibition, Lee showcased her work with TKD (transmission kikuchi diffraction). Her presentation specifically featured Ni-steel FSW and Al-steel VFAW and is entitled, "Efficient High-Resolution Study of Dissimilar Metal Interfaces". 

Genevieve worked alongside Jonathan Orsborn and Antonio Ramirez, who were also honored. Antonio Ramirez was Lee's advisor and is a faculty member in OSU's Welding Engineering program. Jonathan Orsborn is a PhD student working at OSU's CEMAS and helped Genevieve with the TKD development for research. 

CDME and the Department of Commerce funded Genevieve's work with TKD and provided guidance through Ali picture of certificate given to Genevieve Lee and teamNassari, Post-Doc at CDME. Lee credits CDME with driving her project's results through our financial support, "The funding I got from CDME has driven a lot of the results because they funded the sample and the characterization which is the bulk of the work. Without CDME, I really would not have the results of this quality to show", states Genevieve Lee.

Just as we are impressed with Lee's expertise and contributions, she respects the capabilities of a center like CDME, "My favorite part of CDME is hearing about all the projects and technologies that they're using. Just being in that space, even if it's just for the morning meetings, broadens my outlook on my field and always reminds me that there are so many jobs and technologies that I still haven't heard about."  

We bid farewell to Miss Lee in a few weeks when she graduates from The Ohio State University's College of Engineering with her Bachelor and Masters of Science in Welding Engineering and minor in Nuclear Engineering. CDME and its members have benefited greatly from Lee's specific engineering skill set and look forward to adding another talented student to our staff who can compliment the CDME team as Lee did. 

Upon graduation, Genevieve will be traveling before starting her next career in R&D (in Chicago, she hopes).
