Research is formalized curiosity. It is poking and prying with a purpose

- Zora Neale Hurston

My research interests encompass all aspects of what the hell is going on with fundamental processing-microstructure-property-performance relationships in metallic and composite materials. Specific areas of interest include:

  • Ultrafine-grained and nano structured materials by severe plastic deformation
  • Processing and consolidation of and metastable particulate materials
  • Microstructural optimization of lightweight/high-specific strength metals and refractory metals
  • Tailored nanocrystalline microstructures with high thermal stability
  • Deformation mechanisms in nanocrystalline metallic alloys
  • High-rate mechanical response of fine-grained materials
  • Computational materials simulation and design
