Overview

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.
