Kevin G. Ewsuk is a Principal Member of the Technical Staff in the Ceramic Processing and Inorganic Materials Department (1815) at Sandia National Laboratories, where he is responsible for ceramic processing and process modeling R&D, advanced composite processing and characterization, and characterizing and modeling powder compaction and sintering. From 1985-1990, he was a technical staff member in the Central Research and Development Department at E. I. du Pont de Nemours and Co., Inc. Kevin received his Ph. D. and M. S. degrees in Ceramic Science from the Pennsylvania State University, and his BS degree in Ceramic Engineering from Alfred University. Kevin's research interests are in powder processing, process characterization, and sintering science and technology. He is currently the lead principal investigator of a major R&D program at Sandia Labs to characterize and model sintering. Kevin has published more than 90 technical papers, including invited chapters on ceramic processing for the Kirk-Othmer Encyclopedia of Chemical Technology, the Encyclopedia of Chemical Physics and Physical Chemistry, and the Encyclopedia of Materials: Science and Technology. He was Guest Editor of the December 1997 MRS Bulletin on Compaction Science and Technology, and he has edited one book. Kevin holds one patent. He is a Fellow of the American Ceramic Society (ACerS), a member of the Basic Science Division of the ACerS, and a member of the International Microelectronics and Packaging Society (IMAPS).
Dr. Yury Gogotsi is Professor of Materials Science and Engineering at Drexel University in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. He also holds appointments in the Departments of Chemistry and Mechanical Engineering at Drexel University and serves as Director of the A.J. Drexel Nanotechnology Institute and Associate Dean of the College of Engineering. He received his MS (1984) and PhD (1986) degrees from Kiev Polytechnic and a DSc degree from the Institute of Materials Science, Ukrainian Academy of Science, in 1995.
His research group works on carbon nanotubes, nanoporous carbide-derived carbons, and nanofluidics. He has also contributed to the areas of structural ceramics, corrosion of ceramic materials, and pressure-induced phase transformations, creating a new research field called High Pressure Surface Science and Engineering. He has co-authored two books, edited nine books, obtained more than 20 patents and authored about 200 journal papers and a dozen of book chapters. He has advised a large number of MS, PhD and post-doctoral students at Drexel University and University of Illinois at Chicago. Gogotsi has received several awards for his research including I.N. Frantsevich Prize from the Ukrainian Academy of Science, S. Somiya Award from the International Union of Materials Research Societies, G.C. Kuczynski Prize from the International Institute for the Science of Sintering, and Roland B. Snow Award from the American Ceramic Society (twice). He has been elected a Fellow of the American Ceramic Society, Academician of the World Academy of Ceramics, and Full Member of the International Institute for the Science of Sintering.
