University Professor, College of Engineering, Department of Ceramics
Research on developing engineering principles for ceramic materials synthesis and processing. Primary interests in low temperature processes to make materials that can match or improve upon those that require high temperature processing. Main areas of processing expertise are dispersion and particulate mixing and solution crystallization of ceramics. Functional materials expertise extends primarily to electroceramics, optics, and biomaterials. Research work on powder synthesis and processing of oxides and nonoxides.
