Current Research Interests
- Solid-state weldability of High Performance Steels for bridges (Friction Stir Welding and High Frequency welding hybrid process development). Microstructure/property relationships, numerical modeling, Gleeble simulations.
- Microwave Welding of thermoelectric generators using Ni and Al powder at the interface between Bismuth Telluride and copper. Thermal cycling, intermetallic layer growth, improve Figure of Merit.
Previous Research Interests
