Kaitlin is currently an Academic Development Specialist at Ansys. She received her PhD at the University of Illinois Urbana Champaign under Professor Paul Braun. Her research was split: focusing on manipulating eutectic material microstructures and engineering outreach.
Nicole received her B.S. in Engineering Physics at the Colorado School of Mines (â€™13) and her PhD in Materials Science and Engineering at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign (â€™18). She is currently a lecturer in the Materials Engineering De
Jessica A. Krogstad is an assistant professor in the Department of Material Science and Engineering at the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign. She received her PhD in Materials at the University of California, Santa Barbara in 2012. Between 2012 and 2014, she held a postdoctoral appointment in the Department of Mechanical Engineering at Johns Hopkins University. Her current research explores the interplay between phase or morphological evolution and material functionality in structural materials under extreme conditions. She is also one of the co-coordinators for Girls Learning About Materials (GLAM), a summer camp for high school women interested in engineering.
