  Keynote Presentation: A Holistic Approach to Low-Cost Titanium
  Z.Z. Fang, University of Utah

Dr. Zhigang Zak Fang is a Professor of Materials Science and Engineering at the University of Utah. He is a globally recognized innovator in the areas of titanium powder metallurgy, cemented tungsten carbide, refractory metals, and metal hydride for hydrogen and thermal energy storage. Prior to joining the University of Utah, Fang had a successful industrial R&D career for over a decade. He has authored/co-authored over 140 peer reviewed publications. He is the named sole or co-inventor in over 50 issued US patents. He founded/co-founded two start-up companies and successfully commercialized several tungsten carbide and titanium technologies. Prof. Fang is a Fellow of National Academy of Inventors, ASM, and APMI respectively. He was the winner of an R&D100 Award in 2009. He is currently serving as the Editor-in-Chief of the Int. J. of Refractory Metals and Hard Materials, the flagship scientific journal in the field of refractory metals. He also served as a Program Director at Advanced Research Project Agency–Energy (ARPA-E) of the US DOE from 2019 till 2022.

Session 2: 10:15 am–12:05 pm 

  Keynote Presentation: Ti a Bow on Powder to Production: Ti 6Al 4V Case Studies
  A. Andreaco, GE Additive

Amber started her career in GE Aviation in 2005 as part of the Edison Engineering Development Program.  Upon graduation in 2008, she joined the Materials Behavior organization, taking ownership of the mechanical property testing and analysis for additive materials, including the DMLM Co-Cr characterization in support of the LEAP fuel nozzle development.    She helped define requirements for additive material qualification and certification as well as facilitated introduction new methods for evaluating additive materials. 

In 2017, Amber joined GE Additive as a Principal Engineer for Materials Behavior, leading several initiatives for additive material characterization.  She is passionate about the technology and is actively engaged with both internal and external customers to drive the rapid adoption of additive.  She currently leads the GE Additive Materials & Process team.

Amber holds a Bachelor of Science and Master of Science in Materials Science and Engineering from Carnegie Mellon University and The Ohio State University, respectively.
