Dr. Webler received a BS in Engineering Physics from the University of Pittsburgh in 2005 and an MS (2007) and PhD (2008) in Materials Science and Engineering from Carnegie Mellon. His PhD work at CMU was with the Center for Iron and Steelmaking Research (CISR), studying high temperature oxidation of low carbon steels. From 2008 to 2013, he was a Senior Engineer in the Materials Technology Department of the Bettis Atomic Power Laboratory, studying corrosion resistance and mechanical behavior of stainless steels and nickel-base alloys. Dr. Webler joined CMU as an assistant professor in 2013 and is a faculty member in CISR.


Ph.D., Carnegie Mellon University


Dr. Webler's research interests deal with the reactions between metals and their environment, specifically:
(1) Steel production and refining
(2) High temperature oxidation
(2) Corrosion

(3) Fundamental thermodynamics and transport phenomena
