Congratulations to Carl Herriott, John Erickson, and Junyan “Jimmy” He for successfully completing their M.S. degrees!  Carl, John, and Jimmy have made significant contributions to the MMM Lab and to the literature in their fields.  We are very proud of all three graduates and wish them the very best in their careers.


Carl’s thesis, entitled Predicting Spatial Variability of Mechanical Properties in Additively Manufactured Metals with Multiphysics Modeling and Machine Learning, includes two journal articles, which can be accessed below.  Carl is currently employed at Sandia National Laboratories in Livermore, CA.Carl-2


John’s thesis, entitled A Void Descriptor Function to Uniquely Characterize Pore Networks and Predicterickson Ductile-Metal Failure Properties, includes a journal article in the International Journal of Fracture, which can be accessed below.  John is currently employed at Sandia National Laboratories in Albuquerque, NM.



Jimmy’s thesis, entitled, A Finite-Element-Based Framework For Predicting Impact-Induced Infant Skull Fractures, includes a journal article published in Biomechanics and Modeling in Mechanobiology, which can be accessed below. Jimmy will be starting a Ph.D. program at the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign this fall.jimmy_he
