Chris Hareland received a B.S. in Materials Science and NanoEngineering from Rice University in 2019. His current research focuses on promoting the formation of desirable microstructures in components made via metal additive manufacturing (3D printing). While additive manufacturing offers unprecedented control over macroscopic geometry, an understanding of the relationship between the processing parameters and the resulting microstructure is critical for guiding the development of new alloys and optimizing the performance of additively manufactured components.
