Dr. Kavan Hazeli

Principle Investigator

Dr. Hazeli's research lies at the intersection of applied mechanics and materials science and engineering and thrusts on multi-scale experimental and computational characterization of material response and aims to for enhanced functionality and high-performance in novel materials under extreme environments such as temperature, strain rate and fatigue. His work looks to develop a fundamental understanding of the mechanisms by which materials deform and fail across multiple lengths and timescales.

Dr. Hazeli received his Ph.D. degree in Mechanical Engineering from Drexel University in 2014. Prior joining to UAH, Kavan was a postdoctoral fellow at Johns Hopkins University (Apr 2014-Aug 2016) in the Department of ME and the Hopkins Extreme Materials Institute.
