Dr. Mayeur obtained his MS and PhD degrees in Mechanical Engineering from the Georgia Institute of Technology and his BS degree in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Kentucky. After completing his PhD, he joined the Theoretical Division at Los Alamos National Laboratory as a post-doctoral researcher and was later converted to a staff scientist. Prior to joining UAH, Dr. Mayeur most recently worked as a Sr. Research Engineer at CFD Research in Huntsville, AL. Dr. Mayeur's research uses multiscale modeling to study deformation and failure of engineering materials, and focuses on identifying the relationships between material processing, microstructure, and performance. The objective of his research is to increase the efficiency with which next generation engineering materials and manufacturing processes are designed, developed and certified. Specific topics of interest include: nonlocal material behavior, interface-driven phenomena, and dynamic material response.
