Jessica A Krogstad

Krogstad, Jessica_2411Jessica A. Krogstad received her BS with Honors in Materials Science and Engineering from the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign in 2007 and her PhD in Materials at the University of California, Santa Barbara with Prof. Carlos G. Levi in 2012.  Her doctoral work explored phase evolution and structural stability in zirconia-based thermal barrier coatings.  In 2012, she began a postdoctoral appointment in the Department of Mechanical Engineering at Johns Hopkins University with Prof. Kevin J. Hemker. There she focused on the exploration of high temperature metallic systems for MEMS applications and high temperature micro-mechanical testing for experimental validation of multi-scale damage models of superalloy and composite materials in the spirit ofintegrated computational materials engineering (ICME).
