Biography

Ryan Berke is an Assistant Professor of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering and Director of the Mechanics at Extreme Temperatures Lab. His lab uses advanced imaging techniques to extract full-field, in situ temperature and strain measurements across multiple time and length scales. He is especially interested in the role that environment plays on a material’s ability to withstand heterogeneous failure mechanisms such as fracture, fatigue, and creep; with applications geared towards the energy, aerospace, and nuclear industries.
