Hi and welcome! I am Mathew Cherukara, I received my Ph.D in computational materials science and engineering from Purdue University, and a bachelors in materials engineering from the Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Madras. I am now the Group Leader of the Computational X-ray Science group at the Advanced Photon Source at Argonne National Laboratory. My research leverages AI for autonomous experimentation, materials characteriation (metrology) beyond hardware limits and accelerated materials modeling. Examples include novel AI-enabled nanoscale imaging methods, AI-developed physical models and AI-driven experiments. I have 4 patents, have published >60 peer-reviewed scientific articles and am the recipient of research awards from the Materials Research Society (MRS), Defense Threat Reduction Agency (DTRA) and the College of Engineering at Purdue.
