Dr. Georgin specializes in failure analysis and failure prevention of engineering materials, components, and systems. His specific expertise includes metallurgy, microstructure evolution, material joining, and powder processes.
Dr. Georgin has an extensive background in materials characterization using a variety of analytical tools and techniques including metallography, electron microscopy, X-ray diffraction, and mechanical testing.
Prior to joining Exponent, Dr. Georgin was a Graduate Research Associate at The Ohio State University, where he received his Ph.D. in 2020. There, he studied the effects of hot isostatic pressing, friction welding, and various additive manufacturing methods on the microstructure of nickel-base and titanium superalloys. His thesis research dealt with the advanced characterization of second phases and deformation structures in net-shape processed IN-718. This work included extensive image processing, segmentation, and metrology techniques which served to validate calculated thermodynamic models. In addition to his research, Dr. Georgin also directed undergraduate metallography and graduate scanning electron microscopy laboratory courses as a teaching assistant.
