Edgar Lara-Curzio

Distinguished Research Staff Member, Leader Mechanical Properties & Mechanics Group

Bio

As Leader of the Mechanical Properties & Mechanics Group in the Materials Science & Technology Division (MSTD) at the Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL), Edgar Lara-Curzio leads and manages the scientific and technical operations of a group of 20+ researchers focused on the development and characterization of functional and structural materials for applications in energy and national security.
Lara-Curzio also directs the High Temperature Materials Laboratory (HTML), served as Director of the HTML User Program between 2007 and 2012 and coordinated the integration of science and physical resources in MSTD between 2013 and 2015.

In 2001 Lara-Curzio developed and implemented an Internship Program for Laboratory Technicians at ORNL, which has created a pipeline for a new generation of technicians with the skills needed to support current and future missions of ORNL. Today more than 35 former interns holding associate’s and/or bachelor’s degrees are employed as full-time technicians at ORNL. Lara-Curzio also designed and implemented a successful program for Knowledge Preservation to address the graying of the workforce and the large number of staff members who have retired or have become eligible for retirement from ORNL. In 2008 and 2009 Lara-Curzio co-chaired and chaired, respectively, the first two $1M+ United Way fundraising campaigns at ORNL.

Lara-Curzio has been a principal investigator for several research projects sponsored by the U.S. Department of Energy, other Federal Agencies and industry, and has successfully led multiple collaborative projects with industry and academia. His areas of expertise include: mechanical behavior of materials, in particular materials for power generation and for the conversion, transmission, utilization and storage of energy; experimental mechanics and NDE of materials and components; development of test methods for evaluation of physical and mechanical properties; modeling of material behavior; environmental effects on physical and mechanical properties; development of life-prediction models; development, characterization and evaluation of composite materials, coatings and thermal barrier coatings, magnetic materials, thermoelectrics, porous materials, materials for solid oxide fuel cells and materials for gas turbines. He has authored or co-authored more than 230 papers and 4 U.S. patents, and has given more than 50 invited presentations at national and international meetings.

Lara-Curzio has mentored 12 post-doctoral researchers, 20 graduate students, 16 undergraduate students and several junior staff members at ORNL. He has held different positions and served in multiple committees in professional societies, primarily in the American Ceramic Society (ACerS) and the American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM), and actively participates in organizing national and international conferences, as well as serving on various review boards and advisory panels. Currently he is a member of the Board of Directors of ACerS and member of the External Advisory Board for the Institute for Materials at the Georgia Institute of Technology.

Lara-Curzio is a Fellow of both ACerS and ASTM and a member of Alpha Sigma Mu the International Metallurgical Honorary Society.
