Elif Ertekin is an Associate Professor in the Department of Mechanical Science and Engineering at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. Professor Ertekin uses a variety of computational techniques, from atomistic simulations and first-principles calculations, to continuum-scale methods, in order to understand problems related to mechanical phenomena and processes, and the prediction of structures and properties of new materials.
Professor Ertekin's work contributes to CDAC Science Thrust 3: Complex Materials and Thrust 6: Phase Transition Dynamics.
