Congratulations to all of the newly hooded PhDs, including our own Dr. Megan Emigh who was hooded in the Graduate College ceremony this past weekend. Dr. Emigh is the first PhD from the Krogstad group. Best wishes to her as she moves on from Illinois. Congratulations is also in order for Chris Montgomery (Sottos group) […]
Megan successfully defends her thesis!
On Thursday, November 15, 2018, Megan Emigh successfully defended her dissertation entitled, “The Influence of Mixed Hexagonal Close-Packed and Face-Centered Cubic Ordering on Precipitation Pathways and Kinetics in Sputtered Superalloys.” This is one the last steps in formally completing a PhD! Congratulations to Megan! Kaitlin Tyler (Braun Group) and Nicole Johnson-Glauch (Herman/Rockett Group) also successfully […]

Welcome new group members!
The Krogstad Research group is welcoming several new graduate students this fall. Nate Olson will be working on YSZ aerogels for thermal protection systems through a NASA NSTRF Fellowship. Francisco Andrade Chavez will be working on an NSF funded collaboration with Prof. Huseyin Sehitoglu in MechSE on controlled growth of nanotwins for systematic investigation of […]
Congratulations to Charles!
Charles Smith successfully completed his preliminary exam last week! Congratulations!

Seeking Postdoctoral Scholar
EDITED: 9/5/18 – This position has been filled. The Structural Materials in Extreme Environments in the Department of Materials Science and Engineering at the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign has one opening for a postdoctoral scholar. The primary research project will focus on chemical surface modification of structural alloys for improved environmental compatibility. The ideal candidate […]
Check our out most recent paper in Chemistry of Materials
Our most recent paper was recently published in Chemistry of Materials. Students Pralav Shetty and Runyu Zhang (Braun group) collaborated to develop scalable, economic and thermally stable inverse opal structures through aluminization of electrodeposited Ni. This work is closely related to our efforts to modify the surface chemistry of structural alloys in the oil and […]
