Materials Science and Engineering Research

We conduct innovative research in fundamental and applied areas that have significant impact on the nation’s technology priorities for the benefit of society. Our primary research thrusts are corrosion and electrochemistry; structural materials; electronic, magnetic and optical properties of materials; and soft materials. Core strengths in materials synthesis, characterization, and computation and materials informatics underpin and integrate these research areas. Our track record of success with government and private-sector funding sources positions us to play an active role in translating fundamental research results into real-world applications. Our research environment promotes respect, collaboration, student experience, innovation and impact to deliver excellence through diversity.


Structural Materials

We pioneer research in aluminum and magnesium alloys and advance the state-of-the-art in materials for extreme environments.


Soft Materials

We study and develop soft materials to solve challenges in sustainability and health.
