Dr. Boesl received his PhD in 2009 and upon graduation he accepted a position as an ORAU post-doctorate scholar at the U.S. Army Research Laboratory in Aberdeen, MD. At ARL his research focused on material response and design through the development of novel experimental testing procedures and the implementation of computational methods for dynamic progressive failure analysis of protection systems for ballistic applications. Dr. Boesl joined the FIU MME Faculty in 2012 and is the director of the Composites Laboratory and the µStruct Laboratory. His research interests include solid mechanics, fracture mechanics, in situ mechanical testing, high strain rate/dynamic material response, and processing-structure-property relationships.
