M L Lab


Multiscale Modeling of Materials and Machine Learning Laboratory



Welcome to the Multiscale Modeling of Materials and Machine Learning Laboratory (M4L Lab), Dr. David Cereceda's research group at Villanova University. Our research focuses on creating and validating computational models to predict materials behavior across multiple spatial and temporal scales, with a special interest in studying material behavior under extreme environments and bio-inspired materials.


August 2021

Daniella Tagliaferri and Jessica Hoover join the M4L Lab. Welcome, Jessica  and Daniella!

July 2021

New paper out in the Journal of Physics: Condensed Matter. This work shows how ab initio materials modeling can predict the mechanical properties of transmuting W under fusion power-plant conditions.

March 2021
