Jeffrey M. Brookins[edit]


From Jan 2010 to Nov 2013, I was a Sergeant in the United States Marine Corps, spending 18 months in Helmand Province, Afghanistan. Currently, I am enrolled at Michigan Technological University; pursuing degrees in Materials Science and Engineering, and Biomedical Engineering. Since Winter 2014, I have been involved with the Surface Innovations research group exploring in vitro corrosion of zinc and zinc alloys.

Research Interests[edit]

  • In Vitro Zinc Corrosion
  • 3-D Printing
  • SEM
  • First Response Equipment

I am working on[edit]

Currently, I am working on a customizable sample tube holder. My research focuses on long-term immersion testing, within an incubator. Therefore, I will need upwards of 20 sample tubes, segregated by time periods. By designing my own holders, I can minimize the cost and simplify my organization.
