Pawel Keblinski to Be Head of Department of Materials Science and Engineering in the School of Engineering at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute

Materials interface expert Pawel Keblinski has been named head of the Department of Materials Science and Engineering in the School of Engineering at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute. Keblinski, a professor of materials science and engineering, was recently named a fellow of the American Physical Society for 'significant contributions to fundamental understanding of interfacial heat flow using computational materials science tools. Keblinski's work is focused on the relationship between microstructure and various materials properties, such as mechanical response, diffusion, and most prominently thermal transport, in nano-structured and interfacial materials. A major goal of Keblinski's work is to design and analyze computational models in order to gain insights into the nature of the material behavior and properties. These insights are then used to formulate theoretical concepts, to understand experimental results, and to guide future experiments. Other interests include connecting atomic-level modeling with the macroscopic description of the material based on constitutive models. Prior to joining the School of Engineering at Rensselaer in 1999, Keblinski was a postdoctoral researcher at Argonne National Laboratory and worked at Forschungszentrum Karlsruhe in Germany as a recipient of an Alexander von Humboldt Fellowship. Keblinski, a native of Poland, received his M.S. degree from Warsaw University and his doctoral degree from Pennsylvania State University.
