Biographical Info

Dr. Hochhalter joined the University of Utah (UU) as an Assistant Professor of Mechanical Engineering in 2018. At the same time, he began the Materials Prognosis from Integrated Modeling & Experiment (M’) Lab which researches emergent structural and material prognosis issues that involve the multiscale and stochastic nature of plasticity and fatigue cracking. He also currently works as a senior engineer at Analytical Services and Materials and serves on the NASA Engineering and Safety Center (NESC) Materials TDT. Prior to joining UU, he was a Materials Research Engineer and group lead for the Damage Science Group in the Durability and Damage Tolerance Branch at NASA Langley Research Center. Through involvements with NASA, Dr. Hochhalter has received the NESC Engineering Excellence Award and NASA Early Career Achievement Medal. He was supported as a Cornell University PhD student by a NASA Graduate Student Research Fellowship, where he graduated in 2010 with a dissertation topic on computational methods development for simulating the stages of microstructurally-small fatigue crack growth in Aluminum alloys.
