Kevin came to the University of Alberta from the Colorado School of Mines, where he received his B.S. degree in Metallurgical and Materials Engineering. During his studies at Mines, Kevin was involved in the day-to-day operation of a fully functional research foundry and welding lab where he supervised melts and mentored students who were interested in learning more about the science of casting and joining materials.
Kevin values his time with his wife and 4 month old son, Nikoli. Kevin thoroughly enjoys spending time at the drag strip, and was a member of a competition eliminator NHRA drag racing team before research and internships consumed his summers. In his free time he enjoys welding, fabricating, and reading.
