Michael Groeber

Associate Professor of Integrated Systems Engineering and Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering The Ohio State University

Dr. Michael A. Groeber is an Associate Professor of Integrated Systems Engineering and Mechanical and Aerospace engineering at The Ohio State University. Dr. Groeber’s research projects have focused on the quantification and representation of microstructure for improving process and property modeling. Recently, Dr. Groeber has focused on additive manufacturing of metallic components and understanding local processing conditions and their effects on material structure. Dr. Groeber’s passion and vision is in the integration of data analytics and optimization with manufacturing processes to advance the U.S. manufacturing community. Dr. Groeber is also a principal developer/inventor of SIMPL and DREAM.3D, a unique software library and application package that integrates a flexible, hierarchical data structure with numerous digital microstructure, image processing and data analytics tools that will facilitate the advancement of Integrated Computational Material Science and Engineering (ICMSE). Additionally, Dr. Groeber has worked on creating autonomous, multi-modal data collection systems that integrate real-time data analysis to optimize material state data collection and analysis. Prior to joining OSU, Dr. Groeber spent over a decade working in the metals processing and characterization, sensing, and analytics research groups within the Materials and Manufacturing Directorate of the Air Force Research Laboratory. Dr. Groeber received his B.S. and Ph.D. degrees in Materials Science and Engineering from The Ohio State University in 2003 and 2007, respectively. Dr. Groeber has co-authored over 40 papers and 4 book chapters and has over 2000 citations. His works in microstructure quantification and representation have been heavily cited by the community.
