assistant professor, Materials Science and Engineering Department, Carnegie Mellon University, Pittsburgh, Pa., USA
Webler is a faculty member in the Center for Iron and Steelmaking Research at Carnegie Mellon University (CMU). He received a B.S. degree in engineering physics from the University of Pittsburgh in 2005 and an M.S. degree (2007) and Ph.D. (2008) in materials science and engineering from CMU. From 2008 to 2013, he was a senior engineer in the Materials Technology Department of the Bettis Atomic Power Laboratory. Webler joined CMU in 2013. His research interests are primarily in the reactions between steels and their environments, both during processing and in service. Webler has projects studying inclusion evolution during steel processing, high-temperature oxidation of steels and other alloys, corrosion of stainless steels, and microstructure evolution during additive manufacturing of steels. He also teaches classes on computational thermodynamics and corrosion of metals. He received the Kent D. Peaslee Junior Faculty Award from the AIST Foundation in 2015.
