Dr. Ali Ramazani is a Computational Materials Scientist in the U.S. Departmment of Energy (DOE), National Energy Technology Laboratory (NETL). He is a Research Affiliate in the Department of Mechanical Engineering at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), and a Visiting Scientist at Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL). Prior to join DOE, Dr. Ramazani used to work as a Research Scientist and Lecturer at MIT.
His primary research focuses on the development of a fundamental, integrated and quantitative multi–scale materials modeling approaches in combination with the Machine Learning (ML) methods to design and discover materials with exceptional properties. Multi–scale models resolve interactions of material structure and mechanisms at electronic (ab–initio), atomistic (molecular dynamics), micro (mechanics of slip), meso– and macro– (finite element models) scales. He develops models and tools to address key engineering issues, build the process–structure–property–performance relationship, and achieve tailored material response and prediction of material performance in moderate to extreme environments in the framework of the integrated computational materials engineering (ICME) concept. He also develops high-throughput methodologies including ML based models to enable rapid discovery, inverse design, and optimization of novel materials with greater functionalities. Developing such approaches enables design and discovery of new materials for use in a wide variety of applications including energy, electronic, biomedical, automotive and aircraft structures.
