Peter M. Anderson is Professor and Chair in Material Science and Engineering at The Ohio State University. He earned his Sc.B. degree in mechanical engineering from Brown University and his Sc.M. and Ph.D. in Applied Science and Engineering at Harvard University. He was a post doctoral researcher at University of Cambridge, England, before joining the Department of Materials Science and Engineering at OSU in 1988. Since then, he has taken sabbatical or short-term research positions at NIST, Brown University, Los Alamos National Laboratory, and Ruhr University, among others.
The Anderson research group studies how the mechanical properties of engineering materials depend on the structure and physical deformation processes at the crystalline and subcrystalline scales. The approach is to combine analytic, numerical, and experimental techniques, often through a multi-investigator, multi-disciplinary collaboration. Current research efforts are focused on: High-Strength Nanostructures, Fatigue-Resistant Shape Memory Alloys, High Temperature Shape Memory Alloys, Wear-Resistant Stainless Steel Alloys, and Polymer Scaffolds for Tissue Growth.
