He served as Director of Mechanics of Materials at the National Science Foundation in Washington D.C. between 1991-1993. Also, he was the Head of the MechSE Department between 2004 and 2009. His research interests have been in the areas of thermo-mechanical fatigue, cyclic plasticity and shape memory alloys. He has also conducted research on twinning in steels and fatigue crack growth modeling. He has received several awards for his research from ASME (the Nadai Medal, 2007), ASM International (Marcus Grossman Award, 1998). In 2012, he received the University of Illinois Campus Graduate Mentoring Award at Illinois. He is a Fellow of ASME and ASM International.
