Title:  A new perspective on grain boundary migration

Brief Biography:

Prof. Gregory S. Rohrer received his Bachelor’s degree in Physics from Franklin and Marshall College, his Doctoral degree in Materials Science and Engineering from the University of Pennsylvania, and joined the faculty at Carnegie Mellon in 1990, where he is now the W.W. Mullins Professor of Materials Science and Engineering.  From 2005 to 2021, he was the Head of the Department.  Prof. Rohrer has authored or co-authored more than 350 publications.  His technical contributions have been in the area of surfaces and grain boundaries, where he discovered mechanisms for charge separation in oxide photocatalysts, grain boundary texture within polycrystalline materials, and grain boundary energy changes associated with complexion transitions.  He has also developed methods for three-dimensional microstructure analysis and grain boundary property measurement.  Rohrer is a Fellow of the American Ceramic Society and a Fellow of the Materials Research Society.  His research has been recognized by numerous awards, among which are the Richard M. Fulrath Award, the Robert B. Sosman Award, and the W. David Kingery Award, all of the American Ceramic Society.  In 2011, he served as chair of the University Materials Council, from 2016 to 2019 he was a member of the Board of Directors of the American Ceramic Society.  He is currently the Coordinating Editor for the Acta Materialia family of Journals.
