MSI PI Traian Dumitrica Selected as Fulbright US Scholar

Engineering

MSI PI Traian Dumitrica (associate professor, Mechanical Engineering) was selected as a 2019-20 Fulbright US Scholar. Under this award, he will develop complex scientific software to enable manufacturing of lightweight ultra-strong composites in a computationally guided manner.

Professor Dumitrica uses MSI for interdisciplinary research that conducts multiscale design of hard and high-temperature resistant coatings that are thermally stable and oxidation resistant for high-temperature (>1,500 °C) applications.
