Tanzilur Rahman joined Michigan State University in 2020 as a Ph.D. student in Materials Science and Engineering. He is investigating the relationship between the microstructure-processing parameters of severe plastic deformed (SPD) Ti-12Cr and Zinc-Magnesium alloys by high-pressure torsion. Tanzil is our Lab safety representative and WebMaster.
He developed our webpage in 2021. Tanzil received his B.Sc. degree in Materials and Metallurgical Engineering from Bangladesh University of Engineering and Technology and an M.Sc. degree in Mechanical Engineering from Tuskegee University, Alabama. He is a member of the CHEMS Graduate Student Association (GSA) executive board 2022-2023. He is elected graduate student representative of the 2022-2023 Computing Services Advisory Committee (CSAC) for the MSU college of engineering.
Tanzil is conducting research in the field of metallurgy since his undergraduate. He investigated the effect of the addition of different alloying elements in Aluminum alloys as his undergraduate thesis. During his M.Sc. at Tuskegee University, He worked on the development of optimum processing parameters for joining technology of pearlitic rail steel by gas metal arc welding for the Federal Railway Administration. He also worked as an associate supervisor of the undergraduate interns in the Nucor Education and Research Center at Tuskegee University. Tanzil loves history and geography, and enjoys reading, hiking, and traveling
