Guest speaker Dr. Desmond Bourgeois

Dr. Desmond Bourgeois obtained his B.Sc. in Mechanical Engineering from Florida A&M University in 2009 and subsequently earned an M.S. in Welding Engineering and a Ph.D. from Ohio State University in 2014 and 2015. His doctoral research focused on developing a new testing method to evaluate hydrogen-assisted cracking in dissimilar metal welds under cathodic protection. After completing his studies, Dr. Bourgeois spent five years in the Petroleum Industry as a Welding Engineer, Material Specialist, and Quality Lead, specializing in nondestructive evaluation (NDE) and pipeline installations. He has since concentrated on research in in-situ monitoring for additive manufacturing and advancing ultrasonic probe technology for NDE.
