Invited at LEM3 under the action WP5 (“Multiscale Modeling”) Labex DAMAS 26/05 – 10/07

Dr. Dingreville is a Principal Member of the Technical Staff at Sandia National Laboratories (SNL), Albuquerque, New Mexico, USA and is currently in the Structural and Thermal Analysis Department within the Nuclear Energy and Fuel Cycle Programs Center. He holds a PhD in Mechanical Engineering from the Georgia Institute of Technology, Atlanta GA USA (2008). His Ph.D. dissertation was on upscaling theories of atomistic description to a continuum approach of interfaces in nanostructured materials and was supervised by Professor Jianmin Qu. From 2007 to 2009, he was a post-doctoral fellow at Sandia National Laboratories in the Department of Computational Materials Science. During this period his research focused on the theory of defect/microstructure interactions, crystal plasticity finite element analysis and its application to microstructure evolution. From 2009 to 2011, he was an Assistant Professor at the New York University, where he worked on stress-induced texture evolution with inelastic effects, nanomechanics, surface structure, and mesoscale modeling. In 2011, he moved back to Sandia National Laboratories in the Department of Structural and Thermal Analysis. At Sandia, Dr. Dingreville’s research areas include microstructural effects in materials performance and aging, irradiation effects in structural materials, probabilistic mechanics and uncertainty quantification, and mechanics of generalized continua. Dr. Dingreville leads several projects related to materials performance and aging and his research is supported by various agencies including DoE, NSF, NRC and SNL’s LDRD.
