Research Groups

The Johns Hopkins Department of Materials Science and Engineering is committed to nurturing a collaborative environment. Our students have the opportunity to work in small research groups with a faculty advisor and postdoctoral researchers.

The following is a list of research groups led by faculty with a primary affiliation in our department. For faculty conducting materials-related research in other departments, please see our list of associated faculty.

For your convenience, we have also provided a list of current graduate students and postdoctoral researchers in our department.
