MSE Special Seminar: Dr. Jennifer Wolk, Office of Naval Research
Friday, June 23, 2017
10:00 a.m.-11:00 a.m.
2108, Chemical and Nuclear Engineering Building
Additive manufacturing (AM) represents a unique intersection of design, materials, processing and properties. Microstructure and properties are inextricably linked to the part design and processing and AM is ill-suited for conventional qualification techniques. In order to change the paradigm of qualification for additive manufactured components, the Office of Naval Research is pursuing integrated computational materials engineering coupled with in-situ sensors and controls for production of metallic parts. This talk will highlight current efforts in AM research in materials and processes to meet current and emerging warfighter needs to deliver future force capabilities.
Dr. Jennifer Wolk is a program officer at the Office of Naval Research, Naval Materials S&T Division. Dr. Wolk's portfolio focuses on additive manufacturing materials and processes to support Naval applications. Prior to joining the Office of Naval Research in 2015, Dr. Wolk was a senior engineer at the Naval Surface Warfare Center Carderock Division. She lead the Warfare Center Additive Manufacturing Working Group and played a critical role in organizing the Naval Additive Manufacturing Technology Interchange. In addition to technical research for non-ferrous naval alloys, she supported technical assessment of manufacturing technology for use on Naval platforms, such as friction stir welding. Her background also includes expertise in non-ferrous metallurgy, microstructural simulation and characterization, arc welding, friction stir welding/processing, cold spray/thermal spray processes, and advanced manufacturing. She received her B.S. from Johns Hopkins University and her PhD in Materials Science and Engineering from University of Maryland College Park.
