Research

Seismic response and design of steel structures, with an emphasis on understanding and simulating extreme limit states such as fracture, fatigue, and collapse. To achieve this, his research addresses structural performance at the material, component, as well as the building scales. His work involves a combination of large and small scale testing, along with computational simulation and analytical modeling. Some of his recent and ongoing research topics include: (1) Fracture reliability of welded column splices, (2) Seismic performance of column bases, (3) Continuum models for fracture in steel structures, (4) Simulation of localization phenomena in beam-column elements.

Research

The main focus of research interest is determination, prediction, and tuning of the charge carrier concentration and mobility at interfaces in nano-structured conducting solids. Based on the precise knowledge of the controlling parameters the goal is to develop next generation electrochemical devices such as fuel cells, batteries and supercapacitors by utilizing/manipulating the electrical nature of the interfaces in the functional materials.

Research

Research program focuses on understanding protein structures. He is interested in characterizing their shapes, and uses this information to improve our understanding of their stability (ProShape). He is also interested in characterizing the subset of sequence space compatible with a protein structure: this is an indirect approach to understanding protein sequence evolution (ProDesign) . In parallel, he is involved in the development of new algorithms for predicting the structure of a protein, based on its sequence (ProModel). Dr. Koehl will also have a research appointment with the Genome Center.

Research

Electronic and Magnetic materials are an active field of research due to their various applications ranging from memory and data storage to sensors and modulators. Manipulating phase transitions or magnetization using temperature, voltage, laser, strain forms the heart of these applications. We use X-ray techniques to image and understand the response of electronic and magnetic materials to the application of voltage, temperature and laser. Especially laser excitation allows us to reach femtosecond-nanosecond timescales, providing us with a unique method to image the phase transition or switching dynamics in these materials and manipulate physical properties on ultrafast timescales.
