Nikhil Chandra Admal

I am a postdoctoral research scholar working with Prof. Jaime Marian in the Materials Science and Engineering department at UCLA. I am broadly interested in the multiscale modeling of materials at various length and times scales ranging from the atomic scale to the continuum scale. Currently, the focus of my research is on the study of recrystallization in refractory materials to increase their operating temperature, and development of first-principles strain gradient elastic models to include non-local effects relevant in micromechanical systems, and systems with defects.

Bio: I obtained my Ph.D. in Aerospace Engineering and Mechanics from the University of Minnesota under the guidance of Prof. Ellad Tadmor.
