Congratulations to Coleman! Coleman Alleman successfully defended his thesis entitled, “Distribution Enhanced Methods of Homogenization for Heterogeneous Materials and Multi-scale Crystal Plasticity Modeling” on Tuesday, August 25th, 2015. Members of his thesis committee included, Prof. Somnath Ghosh, his thesis advisor, Prof. Lori Graham-Brady, Prof. Jaafar El-Awady, and Dr. Curt Bronkhorst, from Los Alamos National Laboratories (LANL).

Coleman has been a member of Prof. Ghosh’s Computational Mechanics Research Laboratory (CMRL), since 2007 at Ohio State University. He completed his Master’s degree in 2011 from Ohio State with a thesis entitled, “Molecular Dynamics Investigations of Polystyrene-Based Binary Thin Film Systems: Interfacial Properties and Mechanical Behavior”. He later moved to Johns Hopkins University with Prof. Ghosh in 2011 to pursue his PhD in the Department of Civil Engineering. Coleman has recently joined Sandia National Labs in Livermore, California as a postdoctoral researcher. We wish him all the best! Click here for Coleman Alleman’s Thesis Defense Announcement
