Barron Bichon, Ph.D.

Dr. Bichon leads a team at Southwest Research Institute focused in the areas of computational materials and uncertainty quantification. Together, this team seeks to build effective models of material behavior to support confident decision-making. In recent years, they have worked with DARPA and AFRL to apply these concepts to develop new approaches for rapid qualification of AM parts, they are supporting the growth of the hypersonic industrial base by reducing variability in the production of carbon-carbon composites, and they are developing new experimental techniques to evaluate materials in the extreme environments created during hypersonic flight.
