Surface Innovations Team welcomes a new member, Dr. Malgorzata Sikora-Jasinska. Dr. Sikora-Jasinska received her double PhD degree at Politecnico de Milano in Italy (Department of Mechanical Engineering) and University Laval, Canada (Department of Mining, Metallurgical, and Materials Engineering). Her doctoral research program was on development of Fe-based composites by powder metallurgy for cardiovascular implant applications. She also contributed to development and testing of Zn-based bioalloys during her PhD program. Dr. Sikora-Jasinska will help us to develop new Mg and Zn-based alloys and to improve the methods of corrosion evaluation of biodegradable metals by assessing biologically and microbiologically induced degradation properties.
