Professor Tadmor's research focuses on understanding material response from fundamental principles rather than phenomenology. Dr. Tadmor studies microscopic processes that lead to macroscopic phenomena such as fracture and plasticity using atomistic modeling and multiple-scale techniques. Dr. Tadmor is also interested, on a more basic level, in the connection between continuum theory and atomistic models. See the Research menu item for recent research topics.


04-Sep-2018 This Fall Prof. Tadmor is teaching a new Honors Seminar (HSEM 3511H) "Science Court: Strengthening Democracy through Rational Discourse". Students taking the class pick a controversial topic, research the facts, and then argue it in front of a citizen jury in a mock trial format. The objective is to get our polarized society to think rationally about divisive topics. For more details, see the Science Court website.
