- Structural materials for nuclear power applications
- Micromechanisms of deformation in metals and bio-materials; slip, twinning, phase transformation, cracking.
- Development and application of neutron and
x-ray scattering techniques into research of structural materials, data
analysis and statistical treatments.
To strengthen communications between the user community and the APS. I
have worked as an instrument responsible scientist, and been a beamline
user at synchrotron and neutron x-ray facilities around the world. I
hope to bring this dual perspective and experience to assist in
addressing the challenges facing the APS ahead.
