Matthew Daly

    Email Address:
    College: Engineering Department: Civil and Materials Engineering
    Title: Assistant Professor
    Office: ERF 3089
    Participating in the Chancellor’s Undergraduate Research Awards program: Yes

    Research Interest:
    Microstructure – the fundamental unit of organization in materials – is perhaps the most important physical parameter underpinning material performance. For example, the microstructure of nominally soft metals, such as copper, can be engineered to be harder and stronger than steel. At the Advanced Materials and Microstructures Lab (AMML), we are engaged in fundamental studies of microstructure in order to develop advanced materials with unprecedented performance. Our approach implements a diverse set of cutting-edge experimental and computational techniques to reveal the physical laws that determine the behavior of new materials systems.

    We are always looking for passionate and dedicated students to join our team! When contacting me, please indicate if you are interested in working for credit towards CME 392/ CME 496.

    Specific areas of interest currently in the AMML include:
    - Nanomaterials
    - 2D materials (e.g. graphene)
    - Deformation behavior of nanostructured metals

    Minimum time commitment in hours per week: 6

    Qualifications of a Student:
    Preferred majors include: Civil Engineering, Mechanical engineering, Chemical Engineering, Physics.

    Students who enjoyed CME 203 and/or CME 260 should find my research area interesting.

    Brief Summary of what is expected from the student:
    At the AMML we are looking for people with a willingness to learn new skills, self-motivation, and eagerness to undertake challenging problems.
