Recent breakthroughs in the fields of material assessment and computer-based modelling, paired with state-of-the-art data evaluation techniques, allow us to understand how factors such as chemical composition, grain configuration, phase transitions, and crystal arrangements impact the characteristics of metallic materials. Recognizing the essential internal material factors at both nanoscopic and microscopic levels empowers us to engineer innovative metallic alloys with unparalleled properties. With the collaborative integration of computation, empirical studies, and theoretical principles, the development pace of these innovative materials can be significantly boosted, paving the way for a sustainable future for humanity.

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 team 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.
