Missouri Univ. of Science and Technology, USA

My Ph.D. program has been engaged with “Galvanic corrosion of Magnesium (pure Mg, AM50, AZ91) and Aluminum (pure Al, 6063, 6111) couples” in Materials and Metallurgical Engineering at Indian Institute of Technology Kanpur, India under the guidance of Prof. R. Balasubramaniam. It has developed exciting new possibilities in corrosion and surface characterization of metals and alloys. All through my Masters degree work on “Electro-deposition; wear and corrosion characterization of Ni-WC composite” at Indian Institute of Technology Kanpur and undergraduate degree in Metallurgical engineering from National Institute of Technology Warangal (formerly REC Warangal), with this, I have enhanced my knowledge in material characterization, electrochemical deposition of composite and metals, and electrochemical testing such as Tafel polarization, potentiodynamic polarization, electrochemical impedance spectroscopy (EIS). I have implemented the computer-controlled sectional galvanic cell setup at General Motors Research and Development Center, Warren, MI, USA, which proves to be very useful for galvanic corrosion study.
