Theresa - Graduate Research Assistant
Theresa Vo is currently a graduate student in department of Mechanical Engineering at Baylor University. She accomplished her undergraduate study in Baylor's Mechanical Engineering Department, and has begun research for her thesis in the area of non-destructive testing of carbon fiber laminated composites as part of the L-3 Communications projects (Phase 1, Phase 2a, and Phase 2b).  Her current studies focus on nondestructive evaluation methods for failure quantification of fiber reinforced composites and she has developed a series of algorithms for probabilistic failure envelopes and is currently in the process of experimentally verifying and computationally validating the algorithms.
