Highest grade for Nathamar Dudamell´s PhD thesis

Nathamar Dudamell defended her PhD thesis, entitled “High strain rate behavior of Magnesium alloys” on December 17th at the Chemistry School of the Complutense University. The work was awarded the highest grade and the “European doctor” label. Dr. Dudamell´s research consisted on the analysis of the deformation and recrystallization mechanisms of Mg alloys with Al, Zn and rare earth additions in a wide range of temperatures at impact strain rates. This work, advised by Dr. Pérez-Prado (IMDEA Materials) and by Prof. Francisco Gálvez (Polytechnic University of Madrid), was carried out in the framework of the CENIT-MAGNO project, led by the Antolín Group.
