Dr. Faisal Alamgir joined the School of Materials Science and Engineering at the Georgia Institute of Technology as an assistant professor in 2007.  He received his BA in physics and mathematics at Coe College and his Ph.D. in materials science and technology at Lehigh University.

His dissertation work was on the use of electron microscopy and various spectroscopies to study bulk metallic glasses in order to explain their high glass-forming ability from the bottom up.  The work also involved the development of electron microscopy based techniques for probing sub-nanoscale structure.  His dissertation and follow-up work has led to multiple publications including articles in Nature and PRL as well as an invited book chapter.

Following his doctorate, he held a postdoctoral position jointly between Brookhaven National Laboratory (BNL) and Hunter College of the City University of New York for two years where he did research on the development of synchrotron-based in-situ spectroscopies for the dynamic nanoscale study of secondary battery and fuel cell materials. He simultaneously held a position as adjunct professor at Hunter and taught undergraduate physics courses in that capacity.

In February 2006, he has begun working as a Visiting Scientist for the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) where he was one of three scientists in charge of a suite of synchrotron beamlines at BNL.
