IDMI Associate Director Receives Young Investigator Award from the Army Research Office


Assistant Professor, Tim Rupert

May 6, 2016 – The Department of Defense’s Army Research Office has selected UCI Assistant Professor and IDMI Associate Director Tim Rupert for a Young Investigator Program (YIP) award.   Rupert’s research involves engineering better metallic materials at the nanoscale level, where the grain boundaries between crystals affect a material’s mechanical properties. By introducing different elements that change the way those crystals interact, he has been able to design a material that is both super strong and highly ductile (able to bend and stretch).
