Ally Fraser - Bio
Allison is currently a senior at Lehigh University pursuing a B.S. in Materials Science and Engineering with a minor in Mechanics of Materials. Allison has been conducting research with Professor John DuPont as a recipient of the Clare Boothe Luce Research Scholars Award, studying the microstructural stability of graded transition joints at high temperature. She is currently conducting mechanical tests on graded transition joints at elevated temperatures to understand how strain is partitioned along the joint. Outside of research, Allison is involved in the Society of Women Engineers, Alpha Sigma Mu Honors Society, volunteering as a tour guide for the Materials Science and Engineering department, and serves as the secretary of the Student Materials Society. She has also been riding horses for 15 years. Allison is considering pursuing a PhD in Materials Science and Engineering to further develop her interest in metallurgy.
