Modeling Solidification Microstructure

We just received two NASA grants to look into how microstructures evolve during solidification of metallic alloys. Two research positions are available for this research.

A Closer Look


Computational modeling is now regarded as a necessity for the advance of scientific knowledge and engineering practice.  We are interested in modeling materials processing, microstructural evolution, and phase transformations.  


We offer a variety of Additive Manufacuring technologies. Our focus is on understanding the properties and characteristics of the materials processed by additive manufacturing processes.


Our Senior Design Program aims to help students  apply their theoretical knowledge to real applications. The senior design students in our lab have been able to develop wire-arc additive manufacturing and selective laser sintering (SLS) systems. 


Education of 21 century workforce and increasing diversity in science and engineering are key components of our activities. We will be offering an AM workshop soon  to train the participants on various aspects of AM technology.
