IIW Annual Report 2022

the 56th IIW Annual Assembly in Bucharest. A special outcome of his participation in IIW was the creation of the South East European Network for Technology Transfer (SEENET). He is the holder of the inaugural IIW Award for Regional Activities, 2014. For his merits, Prof. Dehelean was awarded the National Order "Star of Romania", the highest Romanian order, and was elected full member of the Romanian Academy of Technical Sciences. Mrs. Teresa Melfi Teresa began her career designing welding consumables that are now used in demanding applications world-wide. She designed novel welding processes and is well known for her work with welding waveforms. Her experimental techniques to study the welding arc, metal transfer and weld metal properties have resulted in major advancements in the welding industry. She holds national and international patents, has published many technical papers and is a regular invited speaker. In addition to IIW, Teresa is a member of ASME, AWS, API, CWB and ISO standardization committees and serves as the welding advisor to the National Board’s Board of Trustees. She is an ambassador for skilled trades, especially welding. Dr. Lippold is currently Emeritus Professor in the Welding Engineering Program at Ohio State University. He retired from OSU in 2016 after more than 20 years on the faculty having trained over 60 graduate students. He received his B.S., M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in Materials Engineering from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute where he was a student of Dr. Warren F. Savage. He worked for seven years at the Sandia Livermore Laboratory, Livermore, CA and from 1985 to 1995 for Edison Welding Institute. In 1995, he joined the faculty of the Welding Engineering Program at OSU. Over the past 40 years, Dr. Lippold has been involved in research activities designed to gain a better understanding of the welding metallurgy and weldability of engineering materials. This includes both fundamental and applied topics with a high degree of industrial relevance. Based on this research, Dr. Lippold has published over 300 technical papers and reports. He is recognized internationally in the field of stainless steel and high alloy welding metallurgy, and weldability testing. He has published three widely used textbooks, Welding Metallurgy and Weldability of Stainless Steels (2005), Welding Metallurgy and Weldability of Nickel-base Alloys (2009), and Welding Metallurgy and Weldability (2014). Dr. Lippold previously received the Jaeger Lecture Award (2008) and the Yoshiaki Arata Award (2009) from IIW and is a Fellow of both ASM International (1994) and the American Welding Society (1996). He is currently Lead Editor of Welding in the World published by Springer in conjunction with IIW. Dr Zheng Sun Dr. Sun obtained his B.Eng (1984), M.Eng (1987) and D.Sc (Tech) (1992) from Tsinghua University, Harbin Institute of Technology and Lappeenranta University of Technology, respectively. Dr Sun has devoted over three decades to developing, applying, and promoting welding science and technology in university, industry, and research institution environments. He has made outstanding contributions in several areas such as stainless steel weldability studies, welding & cladding for pressure vessel Dr John C.
