Research programmes in our group aim at constructing a quantitative and predictive understanding of the phenomena underlying the materials development and application effort with an emphasis on engineering materials. We employ a variety of experimental and computational tools, including advanced electron microscopy techniques, to elucidate and establish process-structure-property relationships in materials.
