Raymundo Arróyave

Dr. Arroyave is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Mechanical Engineering at Texas A & M University. He obtained a PhD in Materials Science from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology with a dissertation that focused on the thermodynamic and kinetic study of high-temperature materials. He joined the A&M faculty in 2006. Prior to this he was a Postdoctoral Scholar in the Department of Materials Science and Engineering at Pennsylvania State University.

His main research thrust has been in the study of phase stability and kinetics of multi-component metallic systems. He has several publications on CALPHAD modeling, alloy theory, ab initio calculations of structural properties of metals, diffusivity predictions through ab initio methods, energetics of point defects in intermetallic systems ands so forth. He is also interested in developing methods for the coupling of phase-field models to thermodynamic Gibbs energy minimization programs that will facilitate quantitative predictions of microstructural evolution. Dr. Arroyave is currently working on the development of several open-source tools for computational materials science simulations.
