We are pleased to announce that MSE faculty member Lesley Frame has been named a member of Heat Treat Today 40 Under 40 Class of 2018 for her research on heat treating, metallurgy, and thermal manufacturing processes.
She previously worked as an associate professor at the University of Bridgeport and as Director of Product Development at Thermatool Corp. in East Haven, Connecticut. She has also conducted research on solar thermal devices as a Research Professor at the Arizona Research Institute for Solar Energy (ARISE) and on residual stress relaxation using x-ray diffraction and neutron diffraction as a Fulbright Scholar at Cardiff University and the Rutherford Appleton Laboratory.
Lesley’s current research examines the relationship between thermomechanical processing, microstructural changes, and residual stresses. While at Thermatool Corp., her research included collaborations with WPI’s Center for Heat Treat Excellence focusing on carbide formation during induction tempering of alloy steels. She joined our faculty team earlier this fall.
Her previous accomplishments include The Bronze Medal Award from ASM International, an Award of Achievement from ASTM, and the President’s Award from Thermatool Corp.
Congratulations Lesley for this national recognition of your work.
