Carl J. Boehlert
Carl J. Boehlert received his B.S. degree in agricultural and biological engineering at Cornell University in 1991. He then received his M.S. (1993) and Ph.D (1997) degrees in materials science and engineering at the University of Dayton, where he studied the physical metallurgy of advanced titanium alloys and their composites. While he was working on his Ph.D. studies, he was employed as a Contractor for UES, Inc. at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base’s Air Force Research Laboratory. There he worked on several projects within the Metal Matrix Composite Team. After leaving Dayton, Professor Boehlert worked for two years as a Postdoctoral Fellow at the Mechanical Engineering Department, the Johns Hopkins University, where he worked on the physical metallurgy of TiAl intermetallic alloys. He then joined Los Alamos National Laboratory as a Postdoctoral Research Associate within the Nuclear Materials Technology Division, where he worked on the physical metallurgy of plutonium and cerium alloys. In September 2001, Professor Boehlert joined the New York State College of Ceramics at Alfred University as an Assistant Professor. He also joined the Department of Chemical Engineering and Materials Science (CHEMS), the College of Engineering, Michigan State University as an Assistant Professor of materials science and engineering in 2005. He is currently an Associate Professor in CHEMS. He has received an NSF CAREER Award (2002) and a Department of Energy Presidential Early Career Award for Science and Engineering (PECASE) in 2002.
