Dr. Buchely is the Roberta and G. Robert Couch Assistant Professor in the Department of Materials Science and Engineering at Missouri S&T, and he is currently working in the Kent D. Peaslee Steel Manufacturing Research Center (PSMRC) at Missouri S&T.
Dr. Buchely earned a B.S. in Mechanical Engineering from National University of Colombia in 2004, and a M.Sc. and a PhD in Mechanical Engineering from Universidad de los Andes (Colombia) in 2010 and 2016, respectively. Subsequently, he held a postdoctoral appointment at Missouri S&T for four years working in the PSMRC in different research projects related to the steelmaking process.
Dr. Buchely has experience in varying research fields including: thermo-mechanical testing and characterization of materials, Finite-Element modeling for structural and thermal applications, Manufacturing technologies (casting, welding, rolling, forging, machining, additive manufacture), Mechanical behavior of materials at high strain rates, and Steelmaking process and technologies.
