Prof. Keblinski received his degrees in Physics, MS from Warsaw University in 1990 and Ph.D. from Penn State University in 1995. Before he joined Rensselaer in 1999 he was a postdoctoral researcher at Argonne National Laboratory and worked at Forschungszentrum Karlsruhe in Germany as a recipient of an Alexander von Humboldt Fellowship. Professor Keblinski’s work is focused on the relationship between microstructure and various materials properties, such as mechanical response, diffusion, interfacial migration and phase diagram, in particular, of nano-structured materials. A major goal of Professor Keblinski’s work is to design and analyze computational models in order to gain insights into the nature of the material behavior and properties. These insights are than used to formulate theoretical concepts, to understand experimental results and to guide future experiments. Other interests include connecting atomic-level modeling with electronic-level studies as well as with the macroscopic description of the material based on constitutive models.
