Alfred University Professor Joins Italian Research Panel

Alastair N. Cormack, Van Derck Frechette professor of Ceramic Science in the Kazuo Inamori School of Engineering at Alfred University (AU), has been invited to serve as a peer reviewer for the National Agency for the Evaluation of Universities and Research Institutes. The group will evaluate the research undertaken by Italian universities and other institutions between 2006-2010. Cormack will serve on one of 14 panels, charged with reviewing all research.

Founding dean of the Inamori School of Engineering, Cormack joined the AU faculty in 1985 and was promoted to the rank of professor in 1992. Considered to be among the leading researchers today in the field of computer modeling of materials, Cormack focuses on the atomic-scale physics and chemistry of materials, particularly ceramics and glass. He uses computers to model the way in which atoms are arranged in solids, and how that arrangement of atoms affects their properties. A frequent lecturer on the topic, Cormack is invited to speak at conferences, colleges and universities around the world.
