Krause is assistant professor of materials science and engineering at Carnegie Mellon University. She received her B.S. and M.S. in materials science and engineering from Virginia Tech, and her Ph.D. in materials science from Brown University. Before joining Carnegie Mellon University in 2022, she was assistant professor at the University of Florida (2019–2022) and a post-doctoral research associate at Lehigh University.
Krause’s research focus is engineering grain boundaries and microstructures for improving the mechanical performance and degradation response of ceramics used in extreme environments. She is a recipient of the NSF CAREER award (2022).
Krause is currently vice chair of ACerS Basic Science Division. Additionally, she was a member of the organizing committee for the Electronic Materials and Applications conference (EMA) in 2022 and 2023, as well as a symposium co-organizer for each year.
We extend our deep appreciation to Krause for her service to our Society!
