Dr. Cote is an Assistant Professor in Materials Science & Engineering at WPI. She received her B.S. from the University of New Hampshire in Chemical Engineering and M.S. and Ph.D. in Materials Science & Engineering from WPI. She also worked as a research engineer at Saint-Gobain High Performance Materials in the Polymer Characterization research group.
Her current research involves:
- Computational thermodynamic and kinetic modeling
- Rapidly solidified materials, with a focus on Al powder alloys (feedstock for AM)
- Solid state additive manufacturing - specifically cold spray processing and characterization
- Database development to aid in integrated computational materials science and materials processing
ASM International featured a Q&A with Danielle Cote, assistant professor, mechanical engineering.
In WPI research news, Worcester Business Journal is the latest to report on the university receiving a $25 million award from the Army Research Lab to be used by Danielle Cote, assistant professor of materials science and engineering, and Kyle Tsaknopoulos, a postdoctoral fellow at WPI. They’ll use the funding to advance a cold spray 3D printing technique that could be used to repair military vehicles and equipment.
