Jeffrey Rickman, a professor of materials science and engineering and physics, has been elected as a Fellow of ASM International, the leading association of engineers and scientists in the field of materials science.
Rickman was honored October 1 at ASM’s annual awards dinner during the Materials Science & Technology (MS&T) 2019 technical meeting and exhibition in Portland, Oregon. He was recognized for his “significant contributions in computational materials science of defects and phase transformations, pioneering work on materials informatics, and distinguished service to the materials science community.”
The ASM Fellow honor was established in 1969 as one of the highest distinctions in materials science and engineering and recognizes technical and professional leaders who have made distinguished contributions in the field. As a Fellow, Rickman will serve as an adviser to the society’s board of trustees.
