McAfee Professor of Engineering, MIT

Markus J. Buehler is the McAfee Professor of Engineering at MIT. Involved with startups, innovation, and a frequent collaborator with industry, Buehler is interested in research to identify and apply innovative approaches to design better materials from less, using a combination of high-performance computing and AI, new manufacturing techniques, and advanced experimental testing. His recent book, Biomateriomics, presents a new paradigm for the analysis of bio-inspired materials and structures to devise new biomaterial platforms and using an AI-based mathematical categorization approach that connects insights from disparate fields such as materials, structures to music, and language. In addition to his regular teaching at MIT, he offers an annual professional education course, “Machine Learning for Materials Informatics.”
