During the visit, Prof. Beyerlein delivered a lecture entitled “Deformation twinning at the intermediate scale”. She presented findings regarding twin embryo formation, twin lamella thickening and multiplication, and twin transmission across grain boundaries. The effects of plastic anisotropy in slip and local crystal neighborhoods were also discussed in her lecture.

Irene J. Beyerlein is currently a professor at UCSB with a joint appointment in the Departments of Mechanical Engineering and Materials. Her research focuses on the creation and design of advanced materials with unprecedented structural performance under extremes of strains, stress, and temperature.

Prof. Beyerlein is a Fellow of the Institute of Physics and serves as Editor of Acta Materialia and Scripta Materialia, as well as Associate Editor of Journal of Engineering Materials and Technology.

Prof. Beyerlein was recently honored with the 2016 NSF ADVANCE STEM Professor Fellowship at the University of New Hampshire. In 2014, she received a fellowship to be a Visiting Professor at the University of Lorraine in Metz, France. Previously, she received the Los Alamos National Laboratory (LANL) Distinguished Postdoc Mentor Award, LANL Fellow’s Prize, and International Journal of Plasticity Young Researcher Award.
