Dr.Malgorzata Ziomek-Moroz a research chemist at NETL’s Albany, Oregon site, has dedicated her life to projects aimed at fundamentally understanding the corrosion of materials. There are many different types of corrosion, and an equally diverse number of ways to control, delay, or prevent it. Corrosion scientists like Dr. Ziomek-Moroz develop and refine methods of corrosion control. Dr. Ziomek-Moroz has been recognized in her field for the impressive breadth of her contributions to the field of corrosion science, including the development of thermal spray zinc and titanium used for the cathodic protection of bridges; the creation of materials for solid oxide fuel cell interconnects; and the electrochemical machining of alloys.

Outside of her work with NETL, Dr. Ziomek-Moroz acts as a mentor and educator for the STEM field. Her mentoring work has guided several graduate students into the field of corrosion and corrosion control, where their subsequent work earned them recognition through NACE student awards. Additionally, Dr. Ziomek-Moroz has been a role model for middle and high school students interested in math, science, and engineering through her participation as a corrosion educator in DOE’s Science Bowl and DaVinci Days.
