Stephen Mashl, a research professor in the Department of Materials Science and Engineering at Michigan Technological University, USA, has been named a Fellow of ASM International.
Fellows are selected based on their distinguished contributions to materials science and engineering. Mashl was recognised for technical contributions in the fields of Powder Metallurgy processing and Hot Isostatic Pressing technology as well as for technical leadership within the HIP industry.
Mashl joined the Michigan Tech faculty in 2011 and is developing an applied research program in particulate materials and Powder Metallurgy. He holds BS, MS and PhD degrees in Metallurgical Engineering from the University and has spent most of his career in industry, most recently as Global Director of Research and Development for the UK based firm Bodycote, where he helped establish Bodycote as a technical leader within the global HIP industry.
He was also a National Research Council Fellow at the Naval Research Laboratory and a postdoctoral fellow at the US Department of Energy’s Ames Laboratory, in Ames, Iowa, USA.
Among his honours and professional activities, Mashl chairs the International HIP Committee and has served as president of the Advanced Particulate Materials Association and director of the North American Isostatic Pressing Association. Mashl has edited, authored or coauthored more than 40 papers, chapters and books and has served as a technical reviewer for four journals.
Mashl recently authored “Hot Isostatic Pressing of large PM products: An industry poised for growth” published in Powder Metallurgy Review Vol. 2 No. 2. The article is available for free download here.
