The Colorado Fuel Cell Center welcomes Dr. Corinne E. Packard. Dr. Packard is an Assistant Professor in the Metallurgical and Materials Engineering Department at CSM and holds a joint appointment at the NREL in the National Center for Photovoltaics. She earned her Ph.D. in Materials Science & Engineering from MIT for her research on the nanomechanics of metallic glasses and the development of high temperature nanoindentation techniques. Her post-doctoral research focused on the control of interfacial and intermolecular forces to fabricate large-area MEMS and pattern materials for OLEDs and organic photovoltaics. At Mines, she explores the fundamentals of plasticity and stress-assisted failure mechanisms in materials used in energy applications.
