Research Project: New compositions and microstructure evolution of High Entropy Alloys for the next generation 3D-printing
Supervisors: Rocco Lupoi (TCD) and Minh-Son Pham (ICL)
JanMell graduated with a Bachelor’s degree in Chemical Engineering at Mindanao State University- Iligan Institute of Technology in the Philippines in 2011. She then went on to finish a master’s degree in Materials Science and Engineering in the same university specializing in synthesis and characterization of intrinsic conducting polymers. In an effort to promote STEM to the younger generation, she then worked as a special science teacher teaching research and chemistry to junior and senior high school students. Her PhD is in Mechanical and Manufacturing Engineering in Trinity College Dublin where she is working on the development of 3D printed high entropy alloys for aerospace applications, exploring the microstructure development of these alloys under microgravity conditions.
