Dr. Soderlind is a materials scientist with expertise in metallurgy and microstructure evolution with an emphasis on materials processing-microstructure-property relationships. She has extensive experience in various characterization techniques including metallography, optical microscopy, scanning and transmission electron microscopy (SEM and TEM), and both mechanical and corrosion characterization techniques.

Prior to joining Exponent, Dr. Soderlind earned her Ph.D at University of California, Davis where she investigated spark plasma sintering and laser powder bed fusion as alternative processing methods for Mg alloy WE43. As part of this work, she gained expertise in phase identification by electron diffraction and chemical analysis using energy dispersive spectroscopy (EDS) as well as microhardness, tensile and compression testing, fracture surface analysis, corrosion surface characterization and immersion experiments. Dr. Soderlind was awarded the UC-National Lab In-Residence Graduate Fellowship, allowing her to spend the last three years of her Ph.D at Lawrence Livermore National Lab. Dr. Soderlind also spent a year of her Ph.D as an academic guest at ETH Zürich. Prior to her Ph.D, she did her undergraduate work at Washington State University where she investigated laser surface treatments of Ti alloys for improved wear resistance.
