Ivan currently studies materials engineering in engineering school in Nantes (Polytech Nantes, France). He began his internship in CCWJ in May 2013. During his summer internship, he will accompany Steven Borle in his current research. His research is on chromium-carbide overlays (CCOs) using SAW (Submerged Arc Welding). Ivan plans to investigate the influence of SAW settings on the wear properties of CCOs.
