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.


03-May-2016 Congratulations to Mingjian Wen on receiving a Doctoral Dissertation Fellowship (DDF) for the 2017-18 academic year! "The DDF gives the University's most accomplished PhD candidates an opportunity to devote full-time effort to an outstanding research project by providing time to finalize and write a dissertation during the fellowship year." Mingian is developing intertomic potentials for 2D materials. For more information visit: http://www.aem.umn.edu/~tadmor/Research/topic-muri-2d.php.php
