Please join us in welcoming our newest HEMI Fellow, Dr. Laszlo Kecskes! Dr. Kecskes is currently a Research Professor within HEMI. His research involves the dynamic behavior of novel material (metals and polymers) systems as well as the creation of materials under extreme processing conditions that lead to unique to meta-stable sub-structures as a means to modify their nominal behavior.
Dr. Kecskes earned a BS in Physics from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, a Masters in Physics from the University of Minnesota, and his PhD in Materials Science and Engineering from the University of Delaware. Previously, he conducted research for the U.S. Ballistics Research Laboratory as well as for the U.S. Army Combat Capabilities Development Command Army Research Laboratory, where he served as co-lead of the Metals Collaborative Materials Group, a subset within the Center for Materials in Extreme Dynamic Environments.
