Congratulations to Dr. Shannon Taylor for successfully defending her thesis, titled “Sintering of Extrusion-based 3D-printed Ni-based Shape Memory Alloys”. In addition to her focus on processing and characterization of 3D-printed Ni-based shape memory alloys, Shannon has also done substantial work in characterizing 3D-printed elemental metals and planetary regoliths. Her manuscripts on Ni-Mn-Ga magnetic shape memory alloys, and on sintering lunar regoliths for extra-planetary structural applications have recently been published in Acta Materialia and Acta Astronautica, respectively. Congratulations Dr. Taylor!!!
