His current efforts focus on microstructural and properties characterization of alloys for high temperature applications as well as coatings for and corrosion protection. His research on coatings involves a range of materials and processing techniques including electrodeposited metal and ceramic coatings, thermal spray cermet coatings, zinc alloy hot-dip coatings, diffusion coatings and weld overlay coatings. Dr. Marder has co-authored over 175 technical papers, edited three books, received 20 U.S.and foreign patents and has been elected as a Fellow of the ASM International. He is amember of TMS, ASMI, AWS, NACE, IMS and ASTM and teaches courses inprocessing, design and phase transformations.
