Dr. Attari is a postdoctoral researcher in the Department of Materials Science and Engineering at Texas A&M University. He has a broad research background in computational materials that spans several disciplines in both academia and industry, focused on the future of electronic and energy materials. He holds a PhD degree in Materials Science and Engineering from Texas A&M, where he developed phase-field models of phase transitions in a number of key electronic (Cu/Sn/Cu interconnects), energy (Mg2SnSi thermoelectrics), and coating (Ti-based nitrides) materials. He has also created a large and diverse synthetic microstructure database utilizing the phase-field approach. This database along with several other microstructure datasets are currently curated at the Open Phase-field Microstructure Database (OPMD) and can be accessed via microstructures.net. He has bachelor’s and master’s degrees in Mechanical Engineering from Iran and Turkey, respectively. He is currently a member of the Chemistry and Physics of Materials Committee in The Minerals, Metals & Materials Society (TMS). He is also the current member of the board of directors of Electronic Device Failure Analysis Society (EDFAS).
