CEAS - Mechanical Eng Tech - 0072


PhD : University of Virginia (Materials Science and Engineering)

MS: Texas A&M University (Aerospace Engineering)

BS: Virginia Tech (Engineering Science and Mechanics)

Research and Practice Interests

Dr. Calhoun's interest revolve around (1) undergraduate education and (2) mechanical deformation of metallic materials.  He is curerntly working to employ data science tools to help glean insights into factors driving student performance and success. In the realm of mechanical deformation, Dr.Calhoun has a background ranging from interpretation of TEM images to full field measurements. He enjoys working to understand deformation mechanisms through advanced experiemental techniques like neutron diffraction and modern modelling approaches like crystal plasticity.
