Our goal is to quantitatively link microstructure to properties, enabling improvements in materials performance. We are using electron backscatter diffraction to investigate the crystallographic relationships between parent and product phases in solid state phase transformations, as well as studying how 3D relationships in microstructures can be estimated from observations on 2D sections.” Dr. Eric J. Payton, Assistant Professor of Materials Science and Engineering “My research is developing the optimization techniques on multi-objective engineering problems. Theoretically, I am developing game theory models and numerical algorithms to solve multi-objective optimization problems. In particular, the engineering problems and energy issues including energy policy, renewable energy and energy management are considered as problems with multi-objective functions and the optimum solution will be developed. The renewable energy is another topic that I am working on.” Dr. Ehsan Ghotbi, Assistant Professor of Mechanical Engineering “My group is especially interested in applications of high-temperature solid-state thermochemistry toward synthesis of metals, ceramics, and their composites (e.g., via gas-solid interactions or via reaction-induced phase transformations). We prioritize the advancement of processing science with the purpose of achieving methodological control over morphological features of interest in order to establish the limits of our understanding of composition-structure-property relationships.” Dr. David W. Lipke, Assistant Professor of Materials Science and Engineering Center for Advanced Ceramic Technology (CACT) At Alfred University’s Center for Advanced Ceramic · Energy · Environment · Health Care · Technology (CACT), the primary mission is to help NYS companies retain and create jobs, increase their productivity, and boost their profi tability through research in advanced ceramic materials and processing. The CACT offers a wide range of research options to help businesses grow and thrive.
