B.S. in Physics, Rutgers University
Ph.D. in Materials Science and Engineering, University of Pennsylvania
Dave conducts research in defects in materials, growth of materials, evolution of the microstructure and morphology of materials, and the mechanical deformation of materials. He does this through the development and application of analytical theory and a wide range of computational modeling techniques, ranging from the quantum mechanical to atomistic to microstructural to continuum.
