Oliver K. Johnson joined the faculty of the BYU Mechanical Engineering Department in 2015. His research incorporates theoretical, computational, and experimental approaches to characterize, design, and synthesize advanced materials. Areas of particular interest include Bayesian inference of grain boundary structure-property models, microstructure design, and synthesis of designed microstructures. Dr. Johnson is a recipient of the National Science Foundation CAREER Award. Before coming to BYU, Dr. Johnson received the National Defense Science and Engineering Graduate Fellowship (NDSEG) and completed his PhD in Materials Science and Engineering at MIT. He also received a B.S. in Mechanical Engineering from BYU.
