I am a postdoctoral fellow in Materials Engineering Department at the University of British Columbia. I maintain this website mainly to host manuscripts of which I am the principal author.  Some of the codes discussed in these manuscripts can be found in my github. I tweet occasionally here and I can be reached at tegar[at]alumni[dot]ubc[dot]ca.

Cheers,

Tegar

Teaching Experience

Engineering Materials

2nd-year undergraduate engineering course on fundamentals of materials science for engineering applications.

(Spring 2012, Winter 2013 – University of British Columbia, Canada)

Failure of Materials

4th-year undergraduate engineering course on modes of material failures in a number of real-life engineering applications and possible preventive strategies.

(Winter 2011 – University of British Columbia, Canada)

Microstructural Modelling

4th-year undergraduate engineering course on modelling the evolution of microstructures during important material processing strategies. Examples include recrystallization of copper, precipitation-hardening of aluminum alloys and hot strip mill for steels.

(Spring 2011, Spring 2012 – University of British Columbia, Canada)

Phase Transformations

3rd-year undergraduate engineering course on thermodynamics and kinetics phase transformations relevant for materials processing. Topics discussed include diffusion, casting, nucleation and growth, and recrystallization.

(Spring 2013, Spring 2014, Spring 2015- University of British Columbia, Canada)

Microstructural Evolution of Deformed Materials

Masters-level engineering course on modelling the evolution of microstructures during material processing. Examples include recrystallization of copper, precipitation-hardening of aluminum alloys and hot strip mill for steels and phase-field models.
