ASM Materials Day Camp Seattle
Mehmet Sarikaya, Materials Camp Supervisor, is a professor of Materials Science and Engineering, adjunct in Chemical Engineering. His research interests focus on the confluence of materials, engineering, biology and medicine, more specifically genetically engineered materials and molecular biomimetics including protein- and peptide-based synthesis, fabrication, and assembly towards function. He has published extensively in these fields (200+ papers, presented 250+ invited talks since 1990, edited 7 books and proceedings). Being the Director of GEMSEC, he is passionately interested in working with next generation of scientists, including high school teachers and students, on the latest science and technology developments. His outreach activities include sponsoring and directing RET, REU, and Materials Camp programs. http://depts.washington.edu/bionano2/.

MENTORS FROM PREVIOUS MATERIALS CAMPS
Dr. Roy G. Baggerly, FASM, Materials Camp Mentor. Principal Engineer, PACCAR Technical Center. Roy has performed corporate as well as independently sponsored materials research and metallurgical failure analysis investigations for over 40 years. His work has focused on evaluation of material properties and root causes of failure emanating from materials, design, manufacturing processes, or service conditions. He has 23 technical publications relating to materials research and failure analysis. He is a Fellow of ASM International and a member of TMS. He has served as chairman of the ASM International Failure Analysis Committee and is past chairman of the Puget Sound Chapter of ASM International. He is a registered Metallurgical Professional Engineer in Washington State and serves on the Editorial Advisory Board of the journal Engineering Failure Analysis. Project: Aerospace Metal Analysis
Doug McNeil Materials Camp Mentor. graduated from Redmond High School, has a Bachelor of Science degree in Chemistry from Eastern Washington University, a Bachelor of Science degree in Chemical Engineering from the University of Washington, and a Masters degree in Education from American Intercontinental University. He has worked at Boeing for 25 years and is currently a chemical engineer in Material and Process Technology in the Corrosion and Metal Finishes group. He teaches mathematics off hours for the Boeing Learning and Educational Development organization, and "A World in Motion" a program teaching engineering principles to 4th graders.
Mr Luther M. Gammon, Materials Camp Mentor. Technical Principal, The Boeing Company (M&PT), Renton, WA. Metallography Microscopist - Developed metallographic techniques in ultra-thin section preparation to allow visual inspection of the structural morphology of materials that were extremely difficult to see prior to this process. These different techniques and reagents are improvements on industry standards and offer new methods unique to Boeing. Responsible for developing procedures, techniques and concepts for the Metallography Lab which include imaging elastomers, polymeric, metallic and rubber failures. These procedures provide the means to resolve complex problems seen in both production and research. Acts as a microscopy consultant for Boeing production support and outside suppliers.
Terry Tscuchiyama Materials Camp Mentor. Associate Technical Fellow, graduated from the University of California Berkeley in 1978 and 1981 with a Bachelor of Science and a Masters of Science in Chemical Engineering. He has been with Boeing since 1981 working on the development of composite materials and processes. Project: Aerospace Windows
Brandon Wilson Materials Camp Instructor AND Mentor, Research: Quantitative characterization of peptide and protein kinetics using SPR, Kinetic Modeling of peptide adsorption
