My name is Ali Afrouzian, Ph.D. candidate in mechanical engineering at Washington State University (WSU). My main research area is to manufacture biocompatible and corrosion resistance implants using additive manufacturing. Given that, I have a broad range of expertise in material selection, manufacturing, design of experiments, mechanical and microstructural testing, and data analysis. Besides, I’m experienced with 8+ years of knowledge in finite element analysis (FEM) running static and structural dynamic simulation by writing user-defined subroutine and commercial software. In the following you can find my technical skills:
Programming: Python, Matlab, Fortran
FEM software, LS-Dyna, ANSYS, ABAQUS
Experienced working with metal and polymer 3D printers.
Material characterization: SEM
Mechanical testing: Tensile, compression, hardness, nanoindentation, EBSD, corrosion
Data Analysis, Statistics, and Writing: Microsoft Office, SAS, Latex
