When considering chemistry, and the multiscale hierarchical microstructures of metallic materials, the design space for novel metallic materials is enormous. Conventional experimental characterizations are insufficient to rapidly and statistically capture the effect of the complex hierarchical structure of metallic alloys. Our group develops and utilizes novel experimental characterizations for rapid, quantitative and statistical measurements of deformation processes. These novel measurements are used in conjunction with computational and theoretical approaches and with advanced multi-modal and multi-scale dataset analysis methods to guide the design of new metallic alloys, with exceptional mechanical properties, for use in energy, transportation, and environmental applications.
