Ms. Evans specializes in corrosion and mechanical testing. Ms. Evans is proficient in evaluating the corrosion susceptibility of metallic medical devices. Additionally, she has experience evaluating mechanical properties of materials mostly through tensile and bend tests performed on mechanical load frames. Ms. Evans’ other laboratory capabilities include Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy (FTIR), White Light Interferometry (WLI), and particle analysis.
Ms. Evans’ previous experience includes processing and scaling carbon-nanotube advanced composite materials. She analyzed the effects carbon nanotubes have on mechanical properties and damage sensing capabilities of composites. Ms. Evans also developed a wearable urinary catheterization training simulator that provides sensory feedback to a live actor.
