Position title: Post-Doctoral Researcher
Najlaa Hassan received her Ph.D. in Chemical Engineering from the University of Maryland. Her research focused on elucidating the mechanism of carbon steel corrosion in seawater. After graduation, she continued her work as a postdoctoral researcher on crude oil pipeline corrosion in Professor Al-Sheikhly’s group at UMD. Najlaa joined MADCOR to work on high throughput electrochemical and characterization methods to develop machine learning and automated processes. Her project focuses on aqueous corrosion of manufacturing additive alloys using the autonomous electrochemical scanning droplet cell at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), Gaithersburg, Maryland.
