About Michael P. Sealy

          Michael Sealy received his Ph.D. in 2014 and B.S. in 2008 in Mechanical Engineering from The University of Alabama (UA) in Tuscaloosa. He directs the Advanced Manufacturing Research Lab at UNL and is President of Surface Integrity LLC, a med-tech startup developing the next generation of biodegradable orthopedic implants. He has made significant contributions to the fields of manufacturing, medical devices, and sustainability. While he was a postdoctoral scholar in the Consortium for Surface Integrity and Functionality at UA, his research focused on sustainable manufacturing and energy consumption during milling. His Ph.D. research focused on processing, surface integrity, and performance of biodegradable magnesium-calcium implants by laser shock peening, which has received national and international recognitions from ASME, SME, ASM, and MRS. He is the recipient of numerous research awards including 2nd Place at the MRS International iMatSci Competition (2014), Mechanical Engineering Graduate Student of the Year by the Alabama Society of Professional Engineers (2011), NAMRI/SME Outstanding Paper Award (2009), Pi Tau Sigma Outstanding Graduate Student in UA/ME (2009 & 2010), and Randal Outstanding Undergraduate Research Award at UA (2008).
