Bio: Benjamin Ellyson is originally from Québec, Canada. He completed his bachelor's degree in mechanical engineering at École Polytechnique de Montréal in 2014. He obtained his Master's of Science in mechanical engineering in 2016 at École polytechnique de Montréal. His project studied the vibration fatigue behavior of Titanium alloys produced by additive manufacturing. In 2017, He moved to Colorado to start his Ph.D. at Colorado School of Mines under the supervision of Prof. Amy Clarke. His project aims to study the microstructural evolution that occurs in metastable Beta Titanium alloys under deformation, such as mechanical twinning or transformation induced plasticity. His interests also include rock climbing, black smithing and having good conversations with friends.
