Eric Lass

Assistant Professor

Eric Lass received his PhD from the University of Virginia in 2008. He moved to National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) in 2009 as an NRC postdoc, and joined permanent staff in 2011.

Lass led the MSE Division project titled “Advanced Materials Design: Structural Applications”; and was the sublead on the MSED project on additive manufacturing, where he is the coordinating of much of the experimental investigation.

Lass’s research interests are in the broad field of phase transformations and microstructural evolution in metals and alloys. Current research topics include combining experiment and computational thermodynamics to understand phase transformations and microstructural evolution in metals and alloys.

He is also active in The Minerals, Metals & Materials Society (TMS) , serving on several technical committees and organizing symposia at the TMS annual meeting.
