Bryan Webler received a bachelor’s degree in engineering physics from the University of Pittsburgh in 2005, and his Master’s (2007) and Ph.D. (2008) in Materials Science and Engineering from Carnegie Mellon. His work at Carnegie Mellon was with the Center for Iron and Steelmaking Research, studying high temperature oxidation of low carbon steels. From 2008 to 2013, he was a senior engineer in the Materials Technology Department of the Bettis Atomic Power Laboratory, studying corrosion resistance and mechanical behavior of stainless steels and nickel-base alloys.
