Nikolas Provatas is an Associate Professor of Materials Science and Engineering and a member of the Brockhouse Institute for Materials Research at McMaster University. He received his Ph.D. in Physics from McGill University. His research in solidification modeling, microstructure formation, reaction-diffusion kinetics and paper physics has been published in numerous high impact scientific journals. He has worked at several prestigious institutions including the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, the University of Helsinki and the Pulp and Paper Research Institute of Canada. His research has also included close collaboration with industry to develop new modeling paradigms for predictive modeling of microstructure-property relationships in materials manufacturing. #60;br#62;#60;br#62;Ken Elder is an Associate Professor of Physics at Oakland University. Having obtained his Ph.D. from the University of Toronto, he then worked at McGill University, Lehigh University and the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign before taking up his present appointment at Oakland University. Dr. Elder has published over 50 scientific articles; his research in condensed matter physics is funded by the National Science Foundation.#60;br#62;
