Humboldt Research Award goes to Materials Scientist Professor Roger Reed

17.12.2012
Professor Dierk Raabe, chief executive of the Max-Planck-Institut für Eisenforschung (Max Planck Institute for Iron Research), successfully nominated jointly with Professor Eggeler from the Ruhr University Bochum (both in Germany) Professor Roger C. Reed for this year’s Humboldt Research Award granted by the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation.

Professor Roger C. Reed, currently at the University of Oxford (UK), is a world-leading materials scientist specialized in high temperature materials and nickel-based superalloys as used for jet engines and power generation applications.

During his research career of twenty years Reed’s major research topics are in the fields of deformation mechanisms in single crystal superalloys under creep and thermal-mechanical fatigue conditions; the analyses of phase transitions and oxidation reactions and quantitative approaches for process modelling for example for models of welding and forging.

The Max-Planck-Institut in Düsseldorf will host Professor Reed for his further research on advanced superalloys from the beginning of March 2013.

The Alexander von Humboldt Foundation yearly awards outstanding international researchers with the Humboldt Research Award. This award comes with a prize money of 60 000 Euros.

The awardees have to be scientists from outside Germany and are characterized by their innovative and trendsetting work in their respective research field.
