TMS Emerging Professionals Tutorial Luncheon & Lecture

Time: Noon to 2:00 p.m.
Presenter: Joy Gockel, Colorado School of Mines
Lecture Title:
"Making Opportunities and Breaking Barriers"

Making things and breaking things is Joy Gockel's lab motto, but this motto often applies to life, too. This presentation will dig into the history of additive manufacturing and 3D printing, paralleled with career path stories from the pioneers and Gockel's own personal experience. Self-reflection themes will be presented to inspire attendees to make the most of early-career opportunities and break perceived barriers. 

Joy Gockel is an Associate Professor in Mechanical Engineering at Colorado School of Mines (Mines) and Executive Director of ADAPT, the Mines additive manufacturing research center and industry consortium. She joined Mines from Wright State University where she was an Assistant Professor in Mechanical and Materials Engineering. Prior to her faculty positions, she was a Lead Engineer at GE Aviation’s Additive Technology Center. She earned her Ph.D. in Mechanical Engineering from Carnegie Mellon University. Her current research specializes in connecting the additive manufacturing processing-structure-properties-performance relationships. For her research and professional contributions, she has been awarded the 2020 ASTM International Young Professional in Additive Manufacturing Award, 2021 TMS Young Leaders Professional Development Award, and the 2021 International Outstanding Young Researcher in Freeform and Additive Manufacturing (FAME Jr.) Award.
