- David Dunand Research Group, Northwestern University
The Structural Metallic Materials Group, supervised by Prof. David C. Dunand, focuses on the mechanical metallurgy of advanced metallic alloys, composites and foams. Concurrent research also addresses advanced processing techniques (e.g., to fabricate novel composites and foams) and microstructure characterization (e.g., to link the observed microstructure to the measured mechanical properties).
