MSE Professor Hamid Garmestani was recently elected a Fellow of the Society by the Board of Trustees of ASM International, the world’s largest association of metals-centric materials scientists and engineers.
The honor of Fellow represents recognition of Dr. Garmestani’s distinguished contributions in the field of materials science and engineering, and develops a broadly based forum for technical and professional leaders to serve as advisors to the Society.
The Materials scientist was named "for significant contributions in developing relationships between processing and microstructural control in crystalline materials, leading to materials design methodologies that address texture in a range of materials systems,” according to the citation.
His primary research and teaching interests include microstructure/property relationship in textured polycrystalline materials, composites, superplastic, magnetic and thin film layered structures. He uses phenomenological and statistical mechanics models in a computational framework to investigate microstructure and texture (micro-texture) evolution during processing and predict effective properties (mechanical, transport and magnetic). His present research interests are processing of fuel cell materials and modeling of their transport and mechanical properties.
This honor will be conferred at the October Convocation of Fellows in Columbus, OH. The 2015 Class of Fellows will also be featured in the September issue of ASM News.
ASM International was founded in 1913 as the American Society for Metals. Today, ASM is the world's largest association of metals-centric materials scientists and engineers with over 30,000 members worldwide. ASM is dedicated to informing, educating and connecting the materials community to solve problems and stimulate innovation around the world.
