About the Beam Team

The Beam Team is known for cross-disciplinary work with a Mechanical Engineering core, such as developing new characterization and data analysis capabilities for studying deformation and manufacturing of materials in situ, and integrating data informatics and machine learning to accelerate discovery, development, and optimization of mechanics models and manufacturing processes. We are also known for incorporating the latest fundamental scientific discoveries into practical, usable tools for innovating engineering applications for companies and the government. Our group is affiliated with the following Centers and Institutes: ADAPTIACMI.
