I’m very excited about my first in-person conference, showcasing my research and getting the opportunity to network with other women in engineering. Cynthia Rodenkirchen Postgraduate Resesarch student

Her poster will explain changes to the composition of a new Ni-superalloy for airplane turbine engines and its effects on microstructural and mechanical properties for future developments in superalloys.

She commented: "I’m very excited about my first in-person conference, showcasing my research and getting the opportunity to network with other women in engineering."

Jessica will present a poster titled the 'Effect of simulated body fluid on additively manufactured Ti-6Al-4V under mechanical load at the conference.'
