Materials R&D for Gas Turbine Technologies at GE Global Research

MSE Seminar
Event Date:
Thursday, October 23, 2014 - 9:00am to 9:45am
MRDC 3515 HIghtower Conference Room

Laura Dial, Ph.D., Materials Scientist

Following her seminar, Laura will be meeting individually or in small groups with MSE/PTFE Ph.D. students who are interested in possible job opportunities at GE Global Research. Students do  not need to be approaching graduation; GE would like to build relationships and stay in touch as students pursue their Ph.D. degree. 

Laura Dial joined GE Global Research in 2011. She is a materials scientist in the Structural and Functional Materials Laboratory, where she is primarily involved in the development of iron, nickel and titanium-based alloys for power generation and aircraft engine applications. Laura received her B.S. in Materials Science and Engineering from Carnegie Mellon University in 2005. She then completed her M.S and Ph.D. degrees in Materials Science and Engineering at Georgia Institute of Technology.

GE Global Research, founded in 1900, is the first industrial lab in the United States. Specializing in market-focused R&D, it is the cornerstone of GE’s commitment to technology. A brief overview of GE Global Research will be given. Research focused on the advancement of gas turbine technologies will be highlighted.
