Recently, EWI Engineering Intern Liya Amanuel was featured in the American Welding Society (AWS) Foundation’s “Summer Job Spotlight,” which profiled this year’s Foundation scholarship recipients. Liya is currently an undergraduate student at The Ohio State University, where she is pursuing a degree in welding engineering. Since starting her internship in May 2018, she has been an active member of the EWI resistance and solid-state processes research team. To date, Liya has worked on projects involving liquation cracking during resistance spot welding of Gen3 steels, capacitor discharge welding, micro-friction welding, and electro-spark deposition for nickel-based superalloys.
EWI is proud of Liya’s accomplishments as an EWI intern and AWS Foundation scholar. In just 18 months, she has been an author on two papers, Critical Factors Affecting the Quality of Electro-spark Deposits on Nickel-base Superalloys and Influence of Current Duration on the Resistance Spot Welding of Galvanized Gen III Advanced High Strength Steel. Her third paper on friction pin welder process development will be published later this year.
