About

Professor Mills earned his PhD degree in Materials Science and Engineering at Stanford University in 1985. He joined the Department of Materials Science and Engineering at Ohio State in 1994 as Associate Professor with tenure after a two-year research associate appointment at Ecole Polytechnique Federale Lausanne, and a six-year appointment as Senior Member of Technical Staff at Sandia National Laboratories. Mills was promoted to Professor in 2000 and was appointed as the McDougal Professor of Engineering in 2004.  He will be assuming the role of Interim Chair for the Department in the Fall of 2014.

Professor Mills’ primary research interests are the relationship between microstructure and properties of materials, with special emphasis on transmission electron microscopy techniques which make it possible to the study the structure and chemistry of materials down to atomic dimensions.  Mills and his group are developing new insights into the mechanical behavior of several important metallurgical systems.  This understanding forms the foundation for models of behavior that have significant basic science content and are also of keen interest with respect to industrial applications through the development of Integrated Computational Materials Engineering (ICME) tools.  His present research programs include studies of creep and deformation in commercial titanium and zirconium alloys, strengthening mechanisms in aluminum alloys and novel ferritic steels and dislocation processes and microstructure development in nickel-based superalloys.  He has authored or co-authored with members of his group over 170 journal articles and is a Fellow of the American Society for Metals.  He was Chair of the 2013 Gordon Research Conference on Physical Metallurgy.
