Dr. Matthew W. Priddy is the PI of the Computational Mechanics and Materials Laboratory (CMML) at MSU. The primary research focus of CMML is the advancement of computational solid mechanics for engineering materials used in multiple applications, including additive manufacturing (AM), civil structures, and orthopedic implants. Specifically, we employ advanced finite element models for examining multi-physics phenomena (e.g., additive manufacturing) and implement advanced material models of various material classes (e.g., metals, cementitious materials) to better understand complex deformation modes. Additionally, we are designing novel devices for data collection for biomedical applications and implementing in-situ monitoring for increased understanding of experiment datasets. We are driven by the pursuit of translating knowledge from research-based simulations to a tractable format for the larger engineering community.
