Haozheng Qu is a Ph.D. student in the School of Materials Engineering at Purdue University, supervised by Janelle P. Wharry. He received his B.S. in Mechanical Engineering (2018) and M.S. in Industrial Engineering (2020) at Purdue University. His doctoral research focuses on understanding the fundamental mechanisms of transgranular chloride-induced stress corrosion cracking (TGCISCC) in 304L austenitic stainless steel through multiscale characterization techniques, including high resolution electron backscatter diffraction (HR-EBSD), X-ray tomography (XRT), and scanning transmission electron microscopy (S/TEM). His research collaborations include Sandia National Laboratories, Oak Ridge National Laboratory, Ohio State University, and VRC Metal Systems. Haozheng has published 8 peer-reviewed articles and proceedings, and has delivered numerous conference presentations. Haozheng’s research was highlighted in the 2021 Purdue InnovatED Magazine. He is the winner of the Pitch Your Research competition at the 2021 American Nuclear Society (ANS) Student Conference and the Purdue University Malott Innovation Award. Haozheng serves as a Technical Program Committee member for the Association for Materials Protection & Performance (AMPP) and the TMS Corrosion and Environmental Effects Committee. He is also actively involved in leading bible studies and personal mentorship at his local church in Indiana.

Jack Grimm is a Ph.D. student in the Department of Materials Science and Engineering at the University of Washington (UW) and the Physical and Computational Science Directorate at the Pacific Northwest National Laboratory through a Distinguished Graduate Research Program. He received a Bachelor of Science degree in Materials Science and Engineering from the Illinois Institute of Technology in 2019. He has been a member of Material Advantage since his second year of undergraduate study, and currently serves as a graduate editor for the student-run journal "Undergraduate Research in Materials Science and Engineering" at UW. His research primarily focuses on the mechanical, chemical, and microstructural characterization from the nano- to the micro-scale of dental enamel across a wide range of species including humans, crocodilians, and both extinct and extant mammals. In addition, he is interested in developing software tools to improve the reliability and repeatability of analyzing atom probe tomography data with the ultimate goal of furthering FAIR data principles.
