"Research Opportunities at ARL's Army Research Office (ARO) – ARO Overview, Science of Extreme Materials Branch, & Materials Design Program"
Abstract: Dr. Evan Runnerstrom currently serves as the Program Manager for Materials Design at the United States DEVCOM ARL Army Research Office. He will present an overview of ARL and ARO and describe funding opportunities available from ARO. He will also present the research interests of ARO’s Science of Extreme Materials Branch and describe specific research thrusts underway in the Materials Design Program.
Bio: Dr. Evan Runnerstrom completed his undergraduate studies at Stanford University, receiving his B.S. in Materials Science and Engineering in 2009 and a M.S. in 2010. He trained as a materials scientist at the University of California, Berkeley, receiving his Ph.D. in Materials Science and Engineering in 2016. His Ph.D. dissertation focused on charge transport processes in colloidal nanocrystal materials. He worked as a postdoc at NC State University, studying plasmonic light-matter interactions in conducting oxide thin films. He came to ARO in 2019 as the Program Manager for the Materials Design Program.
