Michael Leamy's research interests are in emerging and multidisciplinary areas of engineering science, with an emphasis on simulating nonlinear dynamical behavior present in structures and materials. In particular, he is interested in multi-scale computational modeling of nanostructured materials, which promise to be both ultra-strong and multifunctional. Dr. Leamy is also active in applying and extending nonlinear analysis techniques to industry-relevant applications.
Dr. Leamy joined Georgia Tech in 2007 as an Assistant Professor. Prior to that, he was a research scientist in the Emerging Technology Office at the MITRE Corporation, a Federally Funded Research and Development Center, and an Assistant Professor at the United States Military Academy at West Point. Dr. Leamy has also been a postdoctoral fellow at the Technion, Israel's Institute of Technology, and a research associate at the NASA Langley Research Center.
