I worked in my first graduate research on high-temperature oxidation of cobalt- and nickel-base superalloys. In another graduate research, I worked on corrosion rate model for steel in oil and gas environment (carbon dioxide-saturated). Later I worked on corrosion of steel alloys in recovery boiler in pulp and paper plant. Finally, I managed research related to applications and new uses of zinc and zinc products in corrosion prevention.
