Current research is focused on microstructure development in materials processing, especially the role of interfaces:
(1) fundamentals of wetting and infiltration in processing metal-ceramic composites;
(2) colloidal processing of ceramics and ceramic composites;
(3) ultrafine grained metals via machining;
(4) microstructure studies on catalyst materials and
(5) microstructure development in meteorites.
Single crystal Ni-based superalloy CMSX-4 directionally solidified (upward) into and through a particulate alumina preform without change of orientation. See Met.Mater. Trans. 36A, 2461 (2005).
