Ali Ramazani is an assistant research scientist in the Department of Aerospace Engineering at the University of Michigan-Ann Arbor. He is also an affiliated Scientist at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) and Assistant Professor at Amirkabir University of Technology in Iran. He received his PhD degree in Materials Science & Engineering from RWTH-Aachen University in Germany in 2013. As an outstanding researcher, he was honored by the minister of science, research and innovation of North Rhine-Westphalia (Germany) in 2012. Even as a young student, he was ranked and honored in top 1% national 1998 Mathematics Olympiad in Iran.
His primary research focuses on the development of a fundamental, integrated and quantitative multi-scale materials modeling approach to design materials with exceptional properties. Multi-scale models resolve interactions of material structure and mechanisms at electronic (ab–initio), atomistic (molecular dynamics), micro (mechanics of slip), meso– and macro– (finite element models) scales. He develops models to address key engineering issues such as manufacturing process optimization to achieve tailored material response and prediction of material performance in moderate to extreme environments using an integrated computational materials engineering (ICME) approach. Developing such approaches enables design of new materials for use in a wide variety of applications including energy, electronic, biomedical, automotive and aircraft structures.
