Alejandra G Castellanos
Assistant Professor, Mechanical Engineering

Dr. Alejandra Castellanos’s research area is on composite materials, additive manufacturing (AM) and materials under extreme conditions. She studies their failure mechanisms, damage mitigation techniques, and nondestructive testing. Dr. Castellanos is interested in materials for Hypersonic Flight Vehicles, specifically coatings that prevent or minimize environmental degradation and on service damage. Dr. Castellanos is also interested in the development of a novel NDE (Nondestructive Evaluation) technique to identify the failure mechanisms during service on composite materials, specifically for composite overwrapped pressure vessel. Another research interest is the development of damage mitigation techniques for composite materials by using nanotechnology and additive manufacturing (AM).
