Dr. Tushar M. Borkar, assistant professor in the Department of Mechanical Engineering, joined Cleveland State University in 2015. Dr. Borkar’s primary research focus is on advanced metallic and functionally graded composite (or hybrid) materials for aerospace, energy, and biomedical applications. The development of new class of materials (metal alloys and metal matrix composites) via novel advanced processing tools including additive manufacturing processes along with the use of advanced characterization techniques constitute a common thread tying his multiple research activities. These techniques are used to identify the underlying mechanisms and phase transformations governing microstructural evolution and microstructure-property relationships in the complex multi-phase, multi-component materials systems.
