I am a UC Berkeley materials student focused on computational metallurgy. The patterns of phase-separation in rapidly solidified multi-component alloys are of particular interest to me. I hope to advance current methods of simulating the growth and evolution of these complex microstructures. To that end, I am studying the phase-field method and exploring the possibility of bridging gaps between mesoscale and atomistic models as well as incorporating the effects of defects into modern simulations.
