Rupert Recognized as ASM International Fellow

Tim Rupert is named a fellow of the American Society for Metals (ASM) International.

June 7, 2022 - Timothy Rupert, professor of materials science and engineering, has been named to the 2022 Class of Fellows of the American Society for Metals (ASM) International. This honor is given “to provide recognition to members for their distinguished contributions to materials science and engineering and to develop a broadly based forum of technical and professional leaders to serve as advisers to the society.”

Rupert’s research is focused on mechanical behavior, and he works at the intersection of materials science, engineering and physics. His work on nanomaterials aims to uncover new structure-property relationships in advanced nanomaterials for next-generation structural, electronic and energy components, as well as to increase the reliability and durability of these materials. He is currently concentrating on nanocrystalline metals and alloys, thin film materials, and the study of interfaces at the atomic level.

ASM International praised Rupert’s work in the nanomaterials field, citing his “significant contributions in understanding structure-property relations of nanocrystalline metals and alloys, addressing the limitations of the material class and enabling the widespread usage of these advanced materials.”

Rupert is one of 22 engineers who will be honored as new fellows at the International Materials, Applications & Technologies (IMAT) ’22 conference this September in New Orleans.
