Erin Deda worked with Professor Todd Hufnagel studying the temperature rise during shear banding in bulk metallic glasses. She is the recipient of a Rackham Merit Fellowship and is currently working towards her doctorate at the University of Michigan where she is studying the ductility of die cast magnesium alloys.
