Area of Study / Keywords
Materials Characterization and Processing Nanomaterials and Nanofabrication Energy Surface Science and Engineering Metallurgy
Douglas Ivey is a professor in the Department of Chemical and Materials Engineering at the University of Alberta (Canada). He received his Ph.D. in Engineering Materials from the University of Windsor (Canada) in 1985.
Douglas Ivey's research focuses on applying high resolution microstructural characterization techniques to understanding the relationships between materials structure, properties and processing. Materials studied include microalloyed steels, semiconductor metallizations, hydrogen storage materials, materials for electrochemical energy storage (e.g., solid oxide fuel cells, supercapacitors and rechargeable batteries) and minerals in oil sands.
