Dr. Kruzic's Biography and Research Interests

Prof. Jamie Kruzic completed his B.S. degree in Materials Science and Engineering at the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign, and his M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in Materials Science and Mineral Engineering at the University of California, Berkeley.  After three years of post-doctoral work at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, he came to Oregon State University in 2004 where he currently serves as an associate professor in both the Mechanical Engineering and the Materials Science Programs.  His teaching and research focuses on the mechanical behavior of advanced materials and biomaterials, with specific emphasis on the mechanisms of fracture and fatigue.  Prof. Kruzic has more than 80 publications in this field, while courses taught at OSU include "Fracture of Materials," "Mechanical Properties of Materials," "Strength of Materials," "Dislocations, Deformation, and Creep, and "Fatigue of Materials." 

Current research interests are focused on the mechanical properties (e.g. deformation, fracture, and fatigue) of advanced structural materials and biomaterials, including metals, ceramics, intermetallics, interfaces, composites, and biological materials. Prof. Kruzic was recently awarded the Friedrich Wilhelm Bessel Research Award from the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation in Germany and he is a previous recipient of a National Science Foundation CAREER award. Parts of his current and past research has also been funded by the National Institute of Dental and Craniofacial Research (NIDCR), the US Department of Energy's National Energy Technology Laboratory (NETL) and Nuclear Energy University Program (NEUP), The Oregon Metals Initiative (OMI), Intel Corporation, PCC Structurals Inc., and ESCO Corporation.
