Professor Yuri Estrin Becomes Honorary Member of German Materials Society

The German Materials Society (DGM) has distinguished Professor Yuri Estrin, head of the NUST MISIS Laboratory of Hybrid Nanostructured Materials, as an honorary member. An achievement of this status is one of the highest forms of recognition of Estrin`s services to the materials science community.

Professor Yuri Estrin is one of the world`s most famous experts in the field of physical metallurgy. He has written notable works on strength and plasticity modeling, as well as the mechanical properties of nanomaterials. He was one of the initiators of a new approach to materials engineering with the use of geometric principles, and he has also authored numerous works on materials science during his career.

In 2015, Professor Estrin was awarded the year’s Thomson Reuters Citation Award. Every three years, based on citations of scientific paper data, Thomson Reuters selects outstanding Australian researchers and the teams that made a significant contribution to science. Professor Estrin received the only award in the field of engineering sciences, in connection with his research in the field of intensive plastic deformation of materials.

Estrin has also taken home awards from The Alexander von Humboldt Foundation and the Helmholtz Association Awards (both of which are German), the Professor of the International Class distinction (South Korea), and the Staudinger-Durrer Prize (ETH Zurich, Switzerland). Internationally, he is an associate professor at universities in Korea, China, and Australia.

In 2013, Professor Estrin won a Russian Government megagrant and became the head of the NUST MISIS Laboratory of Hybrid Nanostructured Materials.

Estrin is the author of more than 500 articles in refereed scientific journals and conference materials, and holds 10 scientific patents.
