“Ray, pretend for a moment that I don’t know anything about metallurgy, engineering, or physics, and just tell me what the h-ll is going on.”

– Peter Venkman, Ph.D., Ghostbusters, 1984

Welcome to the Mathaudhu Research Lab Website! Our lab studies the underpinning mechanisms behind fundamental processing-microstructure-property-performance relationships in metallic and composite materials.

Some of our current focus areas include:

  • Ultrafine-grained and nanostructured materials by severe plastic deformation
  • Microstructural optimization and homogenization
  • Consolidation of metastable particulate materials
  • Processing-microstructure-property relationships of refractory metals and lightweight metals
  • Thermally stable nanocrystalline materials

Additionally, we like to share our enthusiasm for science and engineering with the youth in our local communities through the science of superheroes.
