Agnew, Sean R.
William G. Reynolds Professor of Materials Science, Professor of Materials Science and Engineering
Our research is focused primarily on metals analysis, including magnesium alloy formability, intermetallic behaviors, and aluminum alloy fatigue. Our methods of analysis typically include uses of SEM, TEM, XRD, and Neutron diffraction. Also included in our army of techniques is mechanical...
My interests are in materials informatics, density functional theory, machine learning, bayesian inference, and optimal design methods applied to accelerate the search and discovery of novel 2D materials, metallic alloys, ferroic and electronic materials.

Burns, James T.
Heinz and Doris Wilsdorf Distinguished Research Professor of Materials Science and Engineering, Associate Professor of Materials Science and Engineering
Our research is primarily directed towards investigating environmental fracture in structural metals, including ultra-high strength steels, 5xxx and 7xxx-series aluminium, and Ni-based superalloys. In particular, the group strives to understand how the environment influences the properties and...
Assistant Professor, Materials Science and Engineering, starting Fall 2024
Kory Burns is an incoming Assistant Professor in the Department of Materials Science and Engineering starting Fall 2024. After obtaining a B.S. in Chemistry from Valdosta State University in 2017, he completed an M.S. in Materials Science and Engineering in 2020 and a Ph.D. in Materials Science...

Our lab’s interests lie at the interface of soft matter and biology. We aim to understand and control the interactions between adaptive soft materials, like responsive polymers or biological gels, and living systems, like bacteria or cells and tissues in the human body. We do this using a...
Dorning, John J.
I am presently pursuing my research interests in the fields of energy management and high-temperature materials. I develop computer codes and novel methodologies to perform and analyze results from these specific calculations. More specifically, I study behavior of anharmonic materials at high...
