Diana R. Haidar is a NSF Graduate Research Fellow and doctoral candidate, advised by professor David L. Burris in the Mechanical Engineering Department at the University of Delaware. While previously conducting research on metal matrix nanocomposites as an undergraduate at UW-Madison, she cultivated a deep interest in the development of next-generation advanced materials. Now as a graduate researcher, she applies her knowledge of designing nanocomposites to the field of tribology, particularly ultralow wear polymeric materials. As part of her work she mentors both undergraduates and high school students in lab research, sharing her excitement for science with them. In addition to this, she strives to promote women in STEM fields by both supporting graduate student’s professional development as a Committee Member of the College of Engineering’s Women In Engineering Program and participating in engineering outreach events for high school girls through the Perry Initiative.
