Professor Tasan explores the boundaries of physical metallurgy, solid mechanics, and in-situ microscopy, in order to provide game-changing materials solutions to environmental challenges.
He received his Ph.D. in Mechanics of Materials from Eindhoven University of Technology in the Netherlands. Following postdoctoral work at Max-Planck-Institut für Eisenforschung in Germany, he was appointed as a Group Leader, leading the Adaptive Structural Materials group until joining MIT in 2016.
His group at MIT mainly focuses on
- developing high resolution multi-field mapping methods;
- employing these methods to improve the physical understanding of the underlying transformation, deformation, damage and healing mechanisms in nanostructured alloys;
- creating damage-resistant and/or healable alloy design concepts based on this improved understanding.
