Hello there! I'm Patrick Bowen, and I am currently a graduate student at Michigan Technological University. So that I don't add something here that gets horribly out of date, you are welcome to check out what I'm up to on one of my personal or professional social networking pages. I try to at least keep everything PG-rated and semiprofessional, so please don't be shy to look.
My interests lie primarily in the area of light metals. I'm currently investigating magnesium with a focus on developing bulk alloys that can be used in a bioabsorbable capacity. That is, implants that go away after a while instead of sticking around inside you indefinitely and setting off metal detectors at the worst times.
