He is currently a graduate student in Materials Science and Engineering at Uof A. During his previous studies he worked on composite materials fabrication through Sol-Gel method, heat treatment of steel and Epoxy/Fiber glass composites. Currently he is working on analyzing data obtained from cooling curves and dilatometry to predict simoultaneous phase transformation/formation under the supervison of Dr. Patricio Mendez.
When Ata is not in the lab, he can be found playing ultimate frisbee, swimming, kayaking, dragon boating and any sport that requires lots of energy! He also enjoys the company of his family and friends but most of all his lab-mates.
