Mathaudhu's interests include synthesis and processing of ultrafine-grained and nanostructured materials through novel severe plastic deformation methods. Specific interests include processing-microstructure-property performance relationships for optimization of high-density bcc metals, such as tantalum, tungsten and niobium, and low density metals such as magnesium, aluminum and titanium.
Suveen Mathaudhu's primary position is serving as the program manager responsible for synthesis and processing of materials with the U.S. Army Research Office (ARO), Materials Science Division. Dr. Mathaudhu began his career with a post-doctoral fellowship, and subsequently a civil servant position at the U.S. Army Research Laboratory, Weapons and Materials Research Directorate with the purpose of establishing deformation-processing laboratories for research on advanced metallic and composite materials. Since joining ARO in 2010, he manages programs which focus on the use of innovative approaches for processing high performance structural materials reliably and at lower costs.
Dr. Mathaudhu's current research interests include: ultrafine-grained and nanostructured materials by severe plastic deformation, microstructural optimization and homogenization, consolidation of metastable particulate materials and processing-microstructure-property relationships of refractory metals and lightweight metals, integrated computational materials engineering, and thermally stable nanocrystalline materials. He is also an active member of TMS where he is the primary organizer of the Ultrafine-Grained Material Symposium, and also serves as Chair of the Magnesium Technology Committee.
