Ramatou Ly is originally from the Ivory Coast (Cote d’Ivoire). She joined the Materials Science and Engineering (MSEN) department of Texas A&M in August 2015. Prior to that she earned a master degree in MSEN in France (Toulouse). She has a strong interest in corrosion science, metallurgy, materials processing and mechanical engineering. At the National Corrosion and Materials Reliability Center, she studies the corrosion resistance of several materials including Aluminum alloys, Magnesium and Steel.
