Rensselaer professor Daniel Lewis receives NSF CAREER Award
Date:2/15/2011

Troy, N.Y. Daniel Lewis, assistant professor in the Department of Materials Science and Engineering at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, has won a prestigious Faculty Early Career Development Award (CAREER) from the National Science Foundation (NSF).

Lewis will use the projected five-year, $630,000 award to understand how materials behave at high temperatures.

"Dr. Lewis is an outstanding researcher and academic, and we are exceptionally proud of him for being selected to receive an NSF CAREER Award," said David Rosowsky, dean of the School of Engineering at Rensselaer. "CAREER Awards are reserved for the nation's most promising young researchers. In addition to his robust research platform, Dan heads the Institute's leading-edge Fuel Cell and Hydrogen Research Lab, and continues to grow the successful ASM Materials Day Camp at Rensselaer as a vehicle for inspiring local high school students to pursue careers in science, technology, engineering, and math. We applaud Dan's achievements, and look forward to his many future successes."

With his CAREER project, titled "Grain Growth and Topological Evolution of Polycrystals," Lewis will use a new approach to investigate the long-standing problem of grain growth in metallic and ceramic materials. Certain properties of these materials are strongly dependent on the size of the grains, or crystallites, that make up the bulk material. Environmental factors, such as exposure to high temperatures, can impact the grain size over time. In some cases, this change in grain size can lead to extensive damage or failure in metals or ceramics. Lewis is seeking to conduct simulations using the Rensselaer supercomputing center, the Computational Center for Nanotechnology Innovations (CCNI), and physical experiments to characterize and better understand the kinetics and thermodynamics of grain growth in metallic materials.

The research program will include participation from high school, underg
