Prof. Demkowicz works at the intersection of fundamental materials physics and computational design of structural materials, such as advanced composites or alloys. Core technologies such as energy, infrastructure, and transportation push available materials to their performance limits. The Demkowicz group uses computational tools to design advanced structural materials needed to make energy cheaper and cleaner, infrastructure safer and longer-lasting, and remote parts of earth and space easier to access. In 2012, Professor Demkowicz received the NSF CAREER award and the TMS Early Career Faculty Fellow award for his work on interface engineering.
