Prior to joining Carnegie Mellon in 2012, Professor Elizabeth Holm spent 20 years as a computational materials scientist at Sandia National Laboratories working on simulations to improve processes for lighting manufacture, microcircuit aging and reliability, and the processing and welding of advanced materials. Holm obtained her B.S.E. in materials science and engineering from the University of Michigan, S.M. in ceramics from MIT, and dual Ph.D. degrees in materials science and engineering, and scientific computing from the University of Michigan. Active in professional societies, Holm has received several honors and awards, is a Fellow of ASM International, the 2013 president of The Minerals, Metals, and Materials Society, an organizer of several international conferences, and has been a member of the National Materials Advisory Board. Holm has authored or co-authored over 110 publications.

Data-frugal deep learning optimizes microstructure imaging
Compared to other computer-vision methods, Elizabeth Holm’s approach to characterizing material microstructure requires only 30-50 images to save researchers an abundance of time and money.
Refuting a 70-year approach to predicting material microstructure
Researchers at Carnegie Mellon University have developed a new microscopy technique that maps material microstructure in three dimensions; results demonstrate that the conventional method for predicting materials’ properties under high temperature is ineffective.
