Dr. Matthew Kasemer’s research interests lie primarily in developing and utilizing computational models to predict the response of metals subjected to loading, with a specific focus on modeling the deformation response of polycrystalline structural alloys. This allows for an understanding of the development of plasticity at both the crystal scale and the sample scale, lending insight into microstructure-property relationships.
