Dr. Klarstrom received his BS, MS and PhD degrees in metallurgical engineering from the University of Wisconsin-Madison. He began his career in the Materials Engineering Department at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee where he did research on the mechanisms of metal brazing. The results of this research earned him the Rene D. Wasserman Award from the American Welding Society. In 1973, Dwaine joined the R&D Department of the Stellite Division of Cabot Corporation. The company was eventually spun off as Haynes International, Inc.
During his 34½-year career at Haynes International, Dwaine performed research in a number of areas including processing and alloy development. This research lead to the awarding of 12 U.S. patents which include commercial alloys such as Haynes 230, HR-120 and Hastelloy B-3. He has authored and co-authored over 100 technical publications, is a Fellow of ASM International, and received the TMS Application to Practice Award.
