Director, Institute of Materials Science & Engineering

Kathy Flores' primary research interest is the mechanical behavior of high performance structural materials, with particular emphasis on understanding structure-processing-property relationships in bulk metallic glasses and their composites....

Prof. Philip Skemer

Associate Director, Institute of Materials Science & Engineering

​The underlying motivation for Professor Skemer's research is to understand the remarkable phenomenon of plate tectonics and its variability among the terrestrial planets.

Marcus Foston, smiling

Associate Professor, Environmental, Energy and Chemical Engineering

Professor Foston’s research objective is to create a top-tier, world recognized research program in the research and education of emerging technologies for exploitation of lignocellulosic biomass, in particular the lignin fraction of biomass, as...

Erik Henriksen

Assistant Professor, Physics

​Erik Henriksen heads an experimental condensed matter research lab with interests primarily in the quantum electronic properties of graphene and other novel two-dimensional systems.

Professor, Chemistry

Professor Loomis's research endeavors focus on the detailed interrogation and manipulation of reaction dynamics at the molecular and atomic level.

Mark Meacham

Assistant Professor, Mechanical Engineering and Materials Science

Mark Meacham’s research interests include microfluidics, micro-electromechanical systems (MEMS) and associated transport phenomena, with application to design, development and testing of novel energy systems and life sciences tools, from scalable...

Rohan Mishra

Assistant Professor, Mechanical Engineering and Materials Science

Rohan Mishra’s research interest is to develop quantitative structure-property correlations in materials starting from the atomic scale. To develop such correlations, his group synergistically combines electronic structure calculations with...

Ryan Ogliore

Assistant Professor, Physics

Our research group uses microanalytical techniques to study extraterrestrial materials in order to better understand the formation and evolution of our Solar System, as well as other stars.

We are analyzing returned samples from a comet,...

Bryce Sadtler

Assistant Professor, Chemistry

The Sadtler research group is interested in how hierarchical structure of materials from the atomic level to nano- and meso-scale can be used to control their physical properties and chemical reactivity.


Simon Tang

Assistant Professor, Orthopaedics

With the overall theme of understanding the biological regulation of skeletal matrix quality, our research group integrates engineering and biology approaches for (1) understanding the effect of disease mechanisms on the structure-function...
