Dr Azdiar Gazder
University of Wollongong, Australia
Dr Gazder is a Senior Research Fellow at the UOW Electron Microscopy Centre which he conceptualised, co-designed and commissioned. His key strengths as a physical metallurgist are in the areas of electron microscopy, crystallography, modelling, code development and engineering. His research interests focus on thermo-mechanically processed steels, Cu, Al, Ti, Mg and shape memory alloys.
The studies involve the determination of crystal phase–microstructure–property relationships via a combination of polycrystalline self-consistent modelling, experimental validation (utilising S/TEM, TKD, EBSD on electron transparent cross-sections, ND, synchrotron diffraction & XRD) and code development (for detailed statistical analysis of EBSD/EDS maps for boundary and phase transformation work).
