Yolanda Hedberg

Associate Professor

Yolanda Hedberg has expertise in corrosion science and surface chemistry of materials, particularly metallic materials, in contact with the human body and other biological environments. Research interests include corrosion of advanced metallic implant materials and metal nanoparticles in physiological and protein-rich environments. Health outcomes of interest are chemically induced allergic reactions, such as allergic contact dermatitis, and diseases and conditions involving the exposure to metals. Dr. Hedberg is particularly interested in complex corrosion mechanisms in the human body, triggered by specific physiological environments and reactions of the immune system.
