My research interests include the machinability of various difficult-to-cut materials (particularly metal matrix composite materials and difficult to machine alloys), understanding and modeling material behaviour under the extreme conditions experienced in machining operations, new lubricants and coatings for applications where bodies experience extremely high temperature and pressure conditions, reliability analysis, survival analysis for predictive maintenance, and developing methodologies for monitoring the sequential events leading to failure.

Block Heading

Maryam received her PhD from Polytechnique Montreal in Mechanical Engineering in 2015. Concurrently with her PhD, she was also a visiting researcher at the National Research Council of Canada (NRC). Her research was focused on analyzing the machinability of titanium metal matrix composites (Ti-MMCs) and developing novel failure prognostic models used for predicting tool life during machining processes.

In 2015 Maryam joined the McMaster Manufacturing Research Institute (MMRI) as a postdoctoral fellow and Professional Education Development Manager. She focused her research on developing methodologies for enhancing the machinability of difficult-to-cut materials, investigating material behaviour under extreme conditions to better understand and model the material behaviour in machining processes. Her research also resulted in the development of a patented dual-functioning lubricant and a novel post treatment technique for cutting tools. In her ongoing role as the MMRI Educational Program Manager, she oversees the RapidSkills-MMRI Industrial Training Program.
