Ellad Tadmor is a Professor of Aerospace Engineering and Mechanics at the University of Minnesota. He received his B.Sc. and M.Sc. in Mechanical Engineering from the Technion - Israel Institute of Technology in 1987 and 1991, and his Ph.D. from Brown University (USA) in 1996. He pioneered computer simulation methods and theories that span multiple length and time scales to predict the behavior of materials and nanodevices, including 2D materials, from their atomic structure. He has published over 70 papers in this area and two graduate-level textbooks. Professor Tadmor is the Director of the NSF Open Knowledgebase of Interatomic Models (OpenKIM), which is a web-based cyberinfrastructure tasked with developing standards and improving the reliability of atomistic simulations, and is on the Editorial Board of the Journal of Elasticity.
