MRF would like to welcome Dr. William Carty
Professor Emeritus William Carty joined MRF, Inc., as Chief Technology Officer in September 2022. He retired from Alfred University in December 2020 after 27 years of teaching ceramic processing for traditional and advanced ceramics, that included powder characterization, rheology, forming, sintering, and mechanical behavior.
He received a B.S. (1985) and M.S. (1987) both in Ceramic Engineering from the University of Missouri-Rolla (now Missouri University of Science and Technology), and a Ph.D. in Materials Science from the University of Washington (Seattle, 1992). He joined Alfred University following a one-year post-doctoral position at Koninklijke/Shell-Laboratorium, Amsterdam (The Netherlands).
Dr. Carty has worked closely with industry during his tenure at Alfred University and has generated over $23 million in research funding, mostly with industrial projects or by leveraging industrial funds with New York State funding sources. He has advised over 200 thesis projects including 10 Ph.D. and 77 M.S. students. He is currently a Research Professor at Alfred University, advising three Ph.D. students, two M.S. students, and six undergraduate thesis students.
The focus of his work at MRF is the establishment of a research program for high temperature sintering and for high temperature mechanical testing of ceramic materials. In addition to working with MRF, he is establishing an analytical laboratory for ceramic materials in Amherst, NH.
