On this episode Alex Corrêa, CEO of Gerdau Graphene joins me to discuss some of the exciting work they are doing.

Gerdau Graphene, is a company that is working to transform graphene into solutions that will revolutionize industries such as coatings, concrete, elastomers, polymers, and lubricants just to name a few. 

Graphene is an ultra-strong, lightweight, flexible, and superconductive two-dimensional nanomaterial formed by carbon atoms in a hexagonal structure.

It is the perfect combination of strength, lightness, flexibility, and transparency, and is an excellent conductor of heat and electricity. 

With annual revenues exceeding $20 billion, Gerdau is the largest producer of steel in the Americas and employs more than 30,000. 

Alexandre Corrêa joined Gerdau in 2020 with the mission of scaling the company’s first advanced material spinoff, Gerdau Graphene, where they are focused on graphene application development.

This week Kelsey Britton joins Andrew Pokelwaldt and me on the podcast to share her background and the work they are doing at IYRS School of Technology & Trades, a non-profit, post-secondary experiential learning institution in Newport, Rhode Island. It is the premier marine trades and modern manufacturing school in the United States. 

Kelsey Britton has a passion for designing and building with some of the lightest, strongest materials on earth. Before joining IYRS as an instructor, Kelsey worked for New England Boatworks where she helped build the 62-foot carbon fiber Tripp design racing boat ChessieRacing. On campus, Kelsey is the primary Rhino 3D computer graphics and CAD instructor, teaching students in multiple IYRS programs the software they'll use to design their school and capstone projects. Kelsey uses her knowledge and experience to instruct and guide students as they conceptualize and build composites projects as diverse as miniature working tug boats to high-impact bicycle helmets.
