Anthony Rollett is a professor of materials science and engineering at Carnegie Mellon University and faculty co-director of the Next Manufacturing Center. Before that, he was with the Los Alamos National Laboratory. He received his Ph.D. from Drexel University and his M.A. from Cambridge University, and he has received such honors as the Member of Honor of the French Society of Materials (SF2M) in 2015, the Edgar C. Bain Award from the Pittsburgh Chapter of ASM International in 2016 and the appointment as U.S. Steel Professor of Metallurgical Engineering & Materials Science at Carnegie Mellon University in 2017. He is a member of the Basic Energy Science Advisory Committee and the Defense Programs Advisory Committee (Dept. of Energy).
Rollett’s research focuses on microstructural evolution and microstructure-property relationships in 3D, using both experiments and simulations. His research interests include 3D printing of metals, materials for energy conversion systems, strength of materials, constitutive relations, microstructure, texture, anisotropy, grain growth, recrystallization, formability and stereology.
