Khaled Morsi

Meet speaker: Khaled Morsi

Dr. Morsi obtained his PhD in 1996 from the Department of Materials, University of Oxford, UK, in the processing and properties of particulate reinforced ceramic matrix composites. Following his PhD he joined the Department of Materials, Imperial College, UK as a Post Doctoral Research Associate, working on the hot extrusion reaction synthesis of Intermetallics. He moved to the US and joined the Department of Mechanical & Aerospace Engineering, University of Missouri-Columbia in 1999 as an Assistant Professor. He is currently Professor at the Department of Mechanical Engineering, San Diego State University, having joined the department in 2003 as an Associate Professor. His research area is Materials Science with a focus on processing and properties of metals, intermetallics and their composites. He has published numerous journal articles in the areas of materials processing and powder metallurgy.
His current activities and interests include spark plasma processing, processing of nanotube reinforced composites, the development of novel composite systems, and processing-microstructure-properties relations in engineering materials. His recent work has largely been funded by the National Science Foundation (NSF). He has taught on various topics including Nanomaterials, Powder Metallurgy, Engineering Materials, Materials, Design and Manufacturing, Advanced Materials Processing and Thermodynamics. He is the recipient of numerous awards including Outstanding faculty award and the Northrop Grumman Excellence in Teaching Award. He has also served as Chair of the Powder Materials Committee and the Advanced Characterization, Testing and Simulation Committee at TMS.
