Dr. Emdadi received her Ph.D. in Materials Science and Engineering from Missouri S&T in 2018 and joined Missouri S&T as Assistant Professor in the Materials Science and Engineering Department in 2020. She also received her B.S in Civil engineering (2001), and M.S. (2003) and Ph.D. (2009) in Structural Engineering from Tehran University, Iran.
Dr. Emdadiâ€™s research area has centered around analytical (mathematical) and numerical modeling of material properties in multi time/length scales. Application of engineering materials for extreme environments, onset of novel processing methods, and new fabrication processes are some of her key research areas with respect to modeling material properties suited to the needs of specific applications.
