The CINT call for user proposals is OPEN March 1-31, 2018. Click here to submit your proposals.

New CINT scientist, Remi Dingreville: We are pleased to welcome our newest CINT scientist, Remi Dingreville. Remi is a computational materials scientist and will be positioned in the In-situ Characterization and NanoMechanics thrust, along with his three postdocs and graduate student. Remi received his PhD in Mechanical Engineering in 2007 from the Georgia Institute of Technology. After a two-year postdoctoral appointment at Sandia National Labs, he joined the Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering at New York University as an Assistant Professor. In 2011 he returned to Sandia National Labs as a Principal Member of the Technical Staff in the Department of Structural and Thermal Analysis. Remi brings expertise in various theoretical and computational techniques for the understanding and characterization of materials under extreme environments. We are very excited to have him join the CINT team!”

CINT scientists honored as APS Fellows: Two CINT scientists were tapped this year as new Fellows of the American Physical Society (APS), a significant honor for the Laboratory and its people. The honorees are, Han Htoon, and Stuart A. Trugman.
