Our main research thrust is on fabrication and characterization of functional metallic materials with tunable properties such as wetting, adhesion, reactivity, strength and plasticity. We are particularly interested in understanding the physics of materials at a very small scale. We employ amorphous metals (known as metallic glasses) as model materials and utilize their thermoplastic behavior to fabricate a wide range of structures down to sub-nm scale on planar as well as curved surfaces (see the images in group logo). We are looking for dynamic and passionate researchers to join our team.
We have an immediate opening for a research assistant graduate student with background/interests in chemistry, materials science, MD simulation. please contact Dr. Kumar for more details.
