Markus J. Buehler, McAfee Professor of Engineering, Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), joins MRS Bulletin as new Editor focused on Original Research

In his research, Buehler pursues new modeling, design and manufacturing approaches for advanced materials that offer greater resilience and a wide range of controllable properties from the nano- to the macroscale. He enjoys a large international network of colleagues and collaborators and will utilize the journal’s, as well as his own, strong connections to the materials community to identify and commission leading research and hot topics—artificial intelligence/machine learning, materials for computing, biomaterials, materials for sustainability, and nanoscience, to name a few—focusing on MRS meetings as a key source of content.

Speaking of his appointment, Buehler commented, “I am excited to support the materials research community in this role, to help disseminate the most innovative work that captures the minds of researchers around the world. We are presented with an extraordinary opportunity to synergistically grow MRS Bulletin by converging what is available—access to a direct pipeline of the most current, advanced research through our members and meeting attendees—with what is needed—a logical source to find the most current leading research, hot topics and foundational contributions in materials science.”

Buehler has a long and active history with the Materials Research Society, beginning with his graduate student days. According to Todd M. Osman, MRS Executive Director, “Markus’ professional stature and extensive network are ideal for reaching into the community for cutting-edge individual research. And as a former MRS Graduate Student Award winner, the 2012 MRS Outstanding Young Investigator Award winner, and a 2021 MRS Fall Meeting Chair, Markus will be also able to advance new opportunities to connect MRS Meetings and our members to MRS Bulletin.”  

Rao concurs. “We are thrilled to have Markus join our MRS Bulletin team. The success of his candidacy is underscored by his vision for the new Impact section of the journal. He brings a breadth of expertise and an international network that will ensure its success. We look forward to working with him on this exciting new venture.”
