Research Interests

My major research interest is in understanding the inter-relationships between processing, microstructure and properties in materials; with an emphasis on mechanical, electrical and magnetic applications. Present research focus is on lightweight structures for land, sea and air transportation applications. Projects include incremental forming of sheet metal and nano-particle additions to aluminum alloys. For polymer composites, we are studying the effect of carbon nanotube and graphene additions to polymer composites utilizing electrical and magnetic fields to produce oriented particles for improved mechanical properties.
