WHAT WE DO
We develop fundamental understanding of deformation and failure of structural materials and study their underlying physical mechanisms. We also develop processing windows for a variety of additive manufacturing and solid phase processes. We advance understanding of the relationships between the processing, the structure and the properties of structural materials and design novel materials with extraordinary performance.
In the Spotlight
NSF CAREER Award for Our Lab!
We will dive into the fundamental science of cold spray additive manufacturing in the next five years and enable performance-oriented processing design and a wider use of this additive process for safety-critical applications.
MSc and Ph.D. Openings
There are currently several openings for MSc and PhD students with interests in mechanical behavior of materials, structural materials, and additive manufacturing. Postdoctoral Fellows, Visiting Researchers and Professors with relevant research interests and their own funding are always welcome to spend time in our Lab at Cornell.
