My name is MD Fazlay Rabbi, and I am an upcoming assistant teaching professor at Penn State-Altoona. I completed my Ph.D. in applied mechanics and materials from the University of Massachusetts- Dartmouth. Before starting my Ph.D., I completed my MS from the same institution. My research interests are in the area of composites material, biomaterial, additive manufacturing, and mathematical modeling under different loading conditions. My Ph.D. research is highly focused on the mechanics of additively manufactured material under quasi-static and dynamic loading. Outside of research, I love photography and travel. In my free time, I like to hike, photography, and cooking.
