Research Interests:Experimental and theoretical aspects of nonequilibrium transformations in and mechanical behavior of in metallic materials. Experimental studies focus on structure characterization by x-ray diffraction, conventional & high-resolution transmission electron microscopy and nanoindentation.
Current research involves the role of grain boundaries in the deformation of nanocrystalline metals, as well as the effect of shear bands in metallic glasses on atomic transport and mechanical behavior.
