Brief Summary of research:
Physical mechanism controlling material behavior, specifically in driven system. I work on phase transitions, response to external load (stress and irradiaiton) and other strong drive conditions. My work includes theoretical and computaitonal modeling of response to external load as well as kinetics and thermodynamics modeling.
Specific research topics related to Nanoscience and Nanotechnology:
Nano-plasticity, mechanisms controlling response of metallic nano-structures to external drive.
