I-AIM Seminar Series with Krishna Rajan
December 18 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

“Data Driven Discovery of Pathways for Materials Design”
The materials science community has in the last decade has used the biological metaphor of “genomics” to guide materials discovery in many ways. However, to fully exploit the challenge of translating what we learn from fundamental materials discovery to exploring multiscale phenomena, require us to be willing to look for connections in the complex network of relationships that govern materials behavior. In this lecture we include examples of harnessing informatics techniques for mapping diverse information and discovering connections between structure and functionality in materials.
About the Speaker:
Krishna Rajan is the SUNY Distinguished Professor and Erich Bloch Chair in the Department of Materials Design and Innovation at the University at Buffalo. Professor Rajan is the leading proponent of the field of Materials Informatics. His research is centered on the application of information science and data intensive methodologies for the discovery, characterization and modeling of materials. Along with computational studies, he is a leader in the field of advancing quantitative methods for the interpretation of nanoscale chemical imaging techniques such as, atom probe tomography.
