MICDE Seminar: Douglas Spearot, PhD, Professor of Mechanical & Aerospace Engineering, University of Florida

April 5 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm


Bio: Douglas Spearot is a Professor in the Department of Mechanical & Aerospace Engineering in the Herbert Wertheim College of Engineering at the University of Florida. His research centers on the use of atomistic and mesoscale simulation techniques to study the mechanical and thermodynamic properties of materials, with particular focus on the behavior of interfaces. Ultimately, the information gleaned from atomistic and mesoscale simulations is used to construct a multiscale understanding of material behavior.


  • 2010 NSF CAREER Award to elucidate the nanoscale mechanisms associated with phase selection during vapor deposition.
  • 2007 Ralph E. Power Junior Faculty Enhancement Award to study plasticity in nanostructured materials.
  • 2020 Teacher of the Year in the Department of Mechanical & Aerospace Engineering, University of Florida.
  • 2014 College of Engineering Imhoff Outstanding Teaching Award, University of Arkansas.
  • 2014 Arkansas Alumni Association Rising Teaching Award, University of Arkansas.

Talk title: Dr. Spearot`s talk title will be posted soon.

The MICDE Winter 2022 Seminar Series is open to all. University of Michigan faculty and students interested in the mechanical and thermodynamic properties of materials are encouraged to attend.

This seminar is cohosted by the Michigan Institute for Computational Discovery (MICDE) and the Department of Mechanical Engineering. Dr. Spearot will be hosted by Dr. Yue Fan, Assistant Professor of Mechanical Engineering.

This is a hybrid event and will be held in-person and broadcast online via Zoom. In-person location and link to Zoom registration will be posted soon. Note: You may register after the event has started.
