Sheidaei, Azadeh

Integrated Computational Material Design Laboratory

Research Focus 

  • Generating virtual database of the material’s microstructure
  • Establishing numerical techniques to homogenize microstructure to obtain physical properties such as stiffness, strength, thermal conductivity, electrical conductivity, permeability, degradation, and piezoelectric.
  • Material informatics and application of scientific machine learning for structure properties links
  • Design and optimization of the printable metamaterial
