Materials Theory, Modeling & Simulation

The Materials Theory, Modeling and Simulation Section applies advanced computational and data analytic techniques to enable fundamental understanding and predictive control of new materials synthesis, fabrication and characterization across length scales.

This section encompasses the following research groups:

Materials Theory Group — Advances the understanding of materials properties, especially strongly correlated materials, to design new materials with complex and emergent functionalities by application and development of theoretical and computational approaches.

Microstructural Evolution Modeling Group — Develops and applies advanced materials models to understand microstructural evolution during solidification and processing.
