Analyze, Compare, and Store Materials Research Data

with Hannah Melia and Dr Mercè Segarra

Join this web seminar on Wednesday, May 13 to find out how CES Selector and CES Constructor can help you to analyze, compare, and store your materials research data, enabling you to easily share and communicate your research results.

Materials researchers generate data. This data needs to be preserved, shared, analyzed, compared and used. Being able to do this in a visually-engaging way helps you to disseminate your research, show the superiority of your material and spot trends and anomalies in your data.

This webinar will showcase CES Selector and CES Constructor, tools that are used by Universities, Government research labs and R&D departments in industry to build databases of materials, and compare them to reference data. The tools can also be used to model hybrid materials and demonstrate the performance of materials against different criteria.

  • Find out how CES Selector and CES Constructor can be used to access advanced industrial data and combine it with your own research data
  • Learn from the experience of Dr Mercè Segarra, from the Centre of Design and Materials Process Optimization (DIOPMA) in Barcelone, Spain, who uses CES Selector and CES Constructor to store, analyze, share and visualize the data produced by her team. She will speak about how she uses the software and what advantages it gives her in communicating her research to a wider audience

Powerful graphical charting...

About the Presenters

About Hannah Melia...Hannah Melia leads the Teaching Resources Team at Granta Design and has responsibility for the coordination of work on the Educational databases. She has a degree in Materials Science and Metallurgy and a Post Graduate Certificate in Design, Manufacturing and Management from the University of Cambridge. She has worked in the United States and Germany on medical device design and technology transfer. Over the last 6 years she has interacted with academics that use CES EduPack around the world.

About Professor Mercè Segarra...Dr Mercè Segarra is the director of the ‘Centre of Design and Materials Process Optimization’ group (DIOPMA) which focuses on Metallurgical Processes and Environmental studies. She also works as a principal teacher in the ‘Material Science and Metallurgy Engineering’ Department (Faculty of Chemistry) at Barcelona University (UB). Her background is in chemistry and she has 18 years of experience teaching Materials and Metallurgy giving her a deep understanding of Education. More recently, her work has moved into Nanoscience (Nanotechnology and Nanomaterials). Her position in DIOPMA is vital. The multidisciplinary group that she leads has different lines of research such as the Characterization of Metallic, Ceramic, Polymer and Composites; the search for new materials (HTSC, SOFC) for storing thermal energy; new applications for recycled materials; recycling, evaluation of by-products, waste treatment and process optimization (improving efficiency and productivity).
