Alex A. Etemad’s interests are in applied nano-engineering to develop ways to mitigate corrosion in steel - one of industry's greatest challenges on a global scale. His work focuses on developing the Accumulative Roll Bonding (ARB) process at room temperature to fabricate nano-structured steel with twinning-induced plasticity (TWIP). He has successfully demonstrated evidence of extraordinary material strength (~ 1.2 GPa), and reasonable ductility (~15%) of ARB-processed TWIP steel. These enhanced mechanical properties are attributable to the formation of nano-configurations in the steel microstructure - such as hierarchical nano-twinned HNT structures, and nano/ultrafine grains with mean size of about 100 nm. Alex holds a B.Sc. degree in Metallurgical Engineering, and a M.Sc. degree in Nanotechnology from the University of Isfahan. Alex is a recipient of the Presidential-award for outstanding achievements, and is currently pursuing Doctoral studies with applied industrial content, in the area of nano-processing for mitigation of corrosion in steel
