RESEARCH INTERESTS

  • Nanostructured materials (metals and alloys): synthesis and processing, microstructure characterization, deformation and mechanical properties, tribological properties, physical properties, chemical reactivity, thermal stability, and phase transformation
  • Amorphous alloys: crystallization, glass transition, pressure effect on thermal stability
  • Non-equilibrium processing: rapidly quenching and rapidly heating, plastic deformation, metastable phase transformation (thermodynamics and kinetics)
  • Melting and superheating of low-dimensional materials: nanoparticles, nano-granular structures, multilayer thin films, computer simulations.
