University of Utah

Lowell Miyagi is the CDAC Academic Partner from the University of Utah.  He is a former CDAC supported graduate student from the University of California - Berkeley.  His research focuses on the development of crystallographic preferred orientation during deposition, crystal growth, deformation, phase transformations, and recrystallization and the effects of preferred orientation on bulk physical properties; high pressure and temperature mineralogy/rheology; and the link between microscopic deformation mechanisms and large scale phenomena like seismic anisotropy.
