    Dr. Waryoba's research interests focus on thermo-mechanical processing of metallic materials with emphasis on structure-processing-property relationship in these materials. Some of the research areas include experimental and numerical modeling methods to investigate and elucidate the mechanics occurring during plastic deformation, recrystallization, grain growth, and mechanisms responsible for the formation and development of deformation and recrystallization texture, microstructure, and grain boundary structure. Prior work experience includes postdoc research associate at the National High Magnetic Field Laboratory in Tallahassee, FL. Current research directions include the optimization of properties in sintered powdered metals and additively manufactured parts.
