Moyer nominated to IMS board

The International Metallographic Society (IMS) has nominated Laura Moyer to its board of directors for a four-year term.

Moyer is the manager of metallography, light optical microscopy, and x-ray diffraction in the materials science and engineering department, where she also earned her BS, MS, and PhD degrees. Prior to Lehigh, Moyer was employed as technical services manager and chief metallurgist at Alcoa, responsible for metallography, heat treatment, welding, and chemical processing.

Moyer is the instructor of several courses in the department, including MAT 10 (Materials Laboratory), ENGR 5 (Introduction to Engineering), MAT 203 (Structure at the Nanoscale), and MAT 206 (Processing and Properties of Metals). She is also the academic director for the Lehigh’s Summer Engineering Institute, runs the ASM Materials Camps, and heads the co-op program for the department. She is highly involved with ASM, serving as chair for her local chapter (LVASM) and chair for the IMS Education Committee as well as instructor for several courses at ASM International.

IMS promotes the art and science of metallography and materials characterization. Members are involved in characterization, performance, behavior and fabrication. Of special interest to members are techniques and the equipment needed for microstructural examination, analysis and evaluation, including light, electron and acoustical microscopy; quantitative/computer-aided microstructural analysis; metallography, ceramography, resinography; and allied sciences for physical and chemical analysis.

Moyer begins her term along with other IMS officer and director nominees in August.
