March 18, 2020

Congratulations to Dr. Fadi Abdeljawad for being awarded one of the ARMY’s most Prestigious awards, namely “Young Investigator Program (YIP)” Award. This is very proud moment not only for Mechanical Engineering and CECAS but also for Clemson.


Dr. Fadi Abdeljawad

YIP awards are one of the most prestigious honors bestowed by the Army on outstanding scientists beginning their independent careers. The objective of the YIP is to attract outstanding young university faculty members to pursue fundamental research in areas relevant to the Army, to support their research in these areas, and to encourage their teaching and research careers.”

Fadi’s proposed work deals with developing a theoretical and computational thermodynamic model of evolving materials microstructures with a special emphasis on interface-driven physics in nano-structured metallic alloys. The work would aid in the design and development of advanced nano-materials with unprecedented properties.
