Dr. Kavan Hazeli Assistant Professor, Mechanical & Aerospace Engineering Department Biography Dr. Hazeli research lies at the intersection of applied mechanics and materials science and engineering and thrusts on multi-scale experimental and computational characterization of material response and aims to for enhanced functionality and high-performance in novel materials under extreme environments such as temperature, strain rate and fatigue. His work looks to develop a fundamental understanding of the mechanisms by which materials deform and fail across multiple lengths and timescales. Our lab focuses on 2D and 3D characterization of microstructural evolution and instability during deformation and failure processes that take place in materials under extreme environments such as temperature, strain rate and fatigue. Our research provides information that can be directly used in the materials by design framework to guide efforts towards the development of next generation, high-strength, light-weight alloys and composites for critical structural materials such as automotive and aerospace applications. Dr. Hazeli received his Ph.D. degree in Mechanical Engineering & Mechanics from Drexel University in 2014. Prior joining to UAH Kavan was a postdoctoral fellow at Johns Hopkins University (Apr 2014-Aug 2016) in the Department of Mechanical Engineering and the Hopkins Extreme Materials Institute. He is also the Chapter Coordinator for Pi Tau Sigma.
