What we do

We study the nonequilibrium microstructural evolution of materials subject to extreme environments. Image credit: NASA Ames.

We build models capable of capturing the pertinent physics on multiple length scales. Image credit: Roters et al., Acta Materialia (2010).


We seek to exploit our knowledge of nonequilibrium phenomena to enable the multiscale design of revolutionary multifunctional materials.
