Current Research Interests:
Adjunct Professor Positions:
University of Southern California, Department of Aerospace and Mechanical Engineering (2008 - present)
Northwestern University, Department of Mechanical Engineering (2017 - present)
ASM International Henry Marion Howe Medal (2018) - For our paper "Formation of the Ni3Nb δ-phase in stress-relieved Inconel 625 produced via laser powder-bed fusion additive manufacturing," Metall. Mater. Trans. 48A 5547-5558 (2017)
Commerce Department Silver Medal (2016) - "For establishing innovative new instrumentation and software to measure microstructure and dynamics in materials over many length scales and under real-world conditions. Their achievement, illustrated through key application studies, provides a new window into materials’ behavior that fosters their deployment into energy, building, and other technologies. The tools, incorporated into a facility that leverages the powerful X-rays at Argonne National Laboratory, are now a sought after resource for industrial, government, and academic scientists nationwide."
NIST Allen V. Astin Measurement Science Award (2004)
For advancements in the measurement of dynamic material properties, leading to the first ever stress-strain measurements at high strain-rate and heating-rate
