Prof. Peter M. ANDERSON

The Ohio State University, Columbus, Ohio, USA

At the COMAT´24 conference prof. Peter M. Anderson will present the plenary lecture Laser Powder Bed Fusion of NiTi Shape Memory Alloys".

Peter M. Anderson is Professor in the Department of Materials Science and Engineering at The Ohio State University. He received his ScB degree in Engineering from Brown University (1981) and ScM and PhD degrees in Applied Sciences from Harvard University (1982, 1986). Following a postdoctoral fellowship at Cambridge University (UK), hejoined The Ohio State University. He has authored/coauthored over one hundred fifty
articles on mechanical behavior of bulk and thin film materials, a comprehensive set of PowerPoint lecture slides for the introductory textbook, Materials Science and Engineering: An Introduction, and most recently, the 3rd edition of Theory of Dislocations (with John Hirth and Jens Lothe). He has held visiting positions at Brown University, National Institute of Standards and Technology, Ruhr-Universität Bochum, and Los Alamos National Laboratory, where he was Bernd T. Matthias Scholar. He is a recipient of an Office of Naval Research Young Investigator Award, the OSU Boyer Award for Teaching Innovation, the OSU Lumley Research Award, and is an ASM Fellow. He recently completed a 4-year term as Chair of the Department of Materials Science and Engineering at The Ohio State University and a two-year assignment as Program Director at the National Science Foundation (US).
