Jason Trelewicz

Dr. Jason Trelewicz is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Materials Science and Engineering at Stony Brook University.  Prof. Trelewicz's research group, the Engineered Metallic Nanostructures Laboratory, focuses on understanding the design, synthesis, stability, and mechanical behavior of unique "mixed-mode" metallic nanostructures such as patterned alloy nanolaminates and metallic glass matrix composites.  Processes such as electrodeposition and thermal spray are employed to synthesize these novel nano and hierarchical structures in binary and ternary alloy systems.  New thermodynamic models are being derived to understand the influence of interfacial structure on stability in an effort to design thermally and mechanically stable hierarchical architectures.  Nanomechanical testing techniques are used in concert with atomistic simulations to study the intriguing deformation behavior that derives from competing physics spanning many length scales in alloy nanostructures.  Prof. Trelewicz received his Ph.D. in Materials Science and Engineering from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in 2008.  Prior to joining the faculty at Stony Brook University, he spent four years in industry as a Principal Investigator at MesoScribe Technologies, Inc. responsible for managing technology development and transition on over a dozen DOD, DOE, and NASA research programs.  Prof. Trelewicz maintains user privileges at the Center for Functional Nanomaterials (CFN) and National Synchrotron Light Source (NSLS) at Brookhaven National Laboratory (BNL).
