“From Data to Discovery: Accelerated search for materials with targeted properties”

Abstract: Next generation experimental facilities will offer unprecedented access to understanding in situ bulk materials behavior and generate data at higher rates than possible today. A key aspect is learning from the data to overcome challenges in analysis and discover new materials. Needed are tools that will seamlessly integrate data with inference and theory, where available, in a codesign loop for guiding experiments. I will review some of our recent work directed towards finding new piezoelectric compositions as well as shape memory alloys, and analysis of diffraction data.

Bio: Turab Lookman is a Fellow of the American Physical Society (2012), recipient of the Japan Society for the Promotion of Science (JSPS) award in 2010 and the LANL Fellows prize for Outstanding Research in Science or Engineering in 2009. He has been the focus lead for Theory, Modeling and Computation for the proposed MaRIE (Matter Radiation in Extremes) XFEL signature facility concept at LANL. He led an LDRD-DR effort at LANL on Materials Informatics 2013-2016, and was Computational Materials lead for ExMatEx, the LANL-LLNL codesign effort for materials under extreme conditions. Before joining LANL in 2000, he held faculty positions at the Universities of Toronto and Western Ontario, Canada. He obtained his Ph.D. from Kings College, University of London. His interests span the study of structural and functional materials and aspects of applied mathematics and computation.
