Pandey, Shubham

  • B. Tech., Materials Science and Engineering, Maulana Azad National Institute of Technology (MANIT), Bhopal, India. 2015

Research Interests::

High Entropy Alloys

Eugene Ragasa

  • e-mail:



  • M.S.E.S. Mechanical Engineering, University of the Pacific
  • M.A. Mathematical Finance, Columbia University
  • B.S. Mathematics, United States Military Academy

Research Interests:

Eugene’s specific interests are in the thermal properties of materials and phonon behavior.  I’m currently exploring the relationship that defects in crystalline solids have on phonon behavior with the specific application being predicting change in Raman spectra given defects in nuclear fuels.

Eugene is also interested in uncertainty quantification in multiscale simulation

What is this view?

You are using a dynamic assistive view of the University of Florida site. It has all the same data and features of the original site but formatted just with assistive users in mind. It has links and content reorganized to aid assistive users and has controls at the bottom under assistive options that allow you to control key aspects such as font size and contrast colors etc.
This is not a separate text-only site, it's a dynamic view that uses unique technology from Usablenet to give assistive users better, more accessible access to the same content and features as all users that use the graphic view of the site.
