Interested in our work?

We develop in-situ microscopy techniques to understand the complex, but beautiful physics of microstructure and damage evolutions in metallic materials. We use this understanding to design alloys with excellent damage-resistance even in extreme conditions.

To know more, check out this MIT news article about Cem’s work and our video below! You can also find more details in our publications.


Please contact Prof. Taşan if you are interested in joining the team. You can also check out or contact page.

Statement on Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion

Each member of our team had different personal journeys that led them here, but, most of us experienced the feeling of being “the other” along the way, at some point. Being different can be tough. But we believe that it is also a gift, one that can, in a healthy environment, create opportunities for growth in numerous ways. We all work hard here to design and run beautiful and meaningful experiments and simulations. But we also do our best to create such a healthy work and social atmosphere, where all feel welcome and valued (regardless of any differences in race, ethnicity, ability, gender, national origin, religion, sexual orientation, and skin color), while being challenged to tackle the world’s most challenging scientific and engineering problems.

We understand that such statements may read well but not tell much. Curious? Just stop by in our offices for a cup of coffee, or attend a group meeting, and see for yourself 🙂
