1. Worked with Haitham El Kadiri on Mg single crystal results. The objective is to understand the twin boundary interaction with c+a dislocation from the TEM, EBSD and DIC  results. Inspiring from the strain rate effect of twin variant selection, we are also looking in the effect of pre-existing dislocation in twin variant selection under quasi-static regime.
2. Worked with Charles on the idea of the effect of the thermal fatigue on the observable traits of the planetary bodies. We found some correlation between thermal inertia and the particle size distribution of the regolith that can be justified by thermal fatigue induce disaggregation.
