Josh Kacher, Post-doc, UC Berkeley

I did my undergraduate and Masters degrees at Brigham Young University focusing on developing techniques for strain mapping and pseudo-symmetry characterization using EBSD analysis. From there, I went to the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign with research focused on using in situ TEM techniques to understand dislocation/defect interactions with an emphasis on grain boundaries in titanium and stainless steels. I am currently working as a post doctoral researcher at the University of California, Berkeley in the materials science and engineering department with research focusing on understanding deformation mechanisms in a variety of systems such as rhenium and Al-Mg alloys.
