MSE Assistant Professor Lesley Frame was recently voted Vice President of the Heat Treat Society (HTS). HTS is a professional organization that serves members who specialize in thermal processing, whereby metals, ceramics, and other materials are heated and cooled to improve their performance and durability. HTS is an affiliate society of ASM International, one of the largest associations of materials engineers and materials scientists in the world.
According to the November/December issue of Advanced Materials and Processes (AM&P), an ASM International publication, Frame is the first woman in an HTS Officer role. Frame is also the immediate past chair of the HTS Technology and Programming Committee and current chair of ASM’s Women in Materials Engineering Committee.
As Department Head Bryan Huey notes, “Lesley’s election is another great example of UConn MSE faculty being recognized by their professional peers for their leadership and expertise.”
