BYU's Brent L. Adams named fellow of national society

Brent L. Adams, the Dusenberry Professor of Mechanical Engineering at Brigham Young University, has been elected a fellow of the ASM International Society, a leading organization for materials studies.

He will be recognized at the ASM Materials Solutions Conference and Exposition Oct. 19 in Columbus, Ohio.

Adams said he considers it an honor to be named to the fellowship of such a society.

"It's great," he said. "It's a recognition of my work over the past 25 years, that it's being noticed as important and useful and that it's making a permanent contribution."

Adams has contributed to the study of microstructure, including advances in representation, stereology and the development of Orientation Imaging Microscopy.

OIM allows researchers to see the orientation of crystal in materials. Most materials are crystalline in nature. Once the orientation has been identified, the properties of the material can be predicted.

OIM was invented by Adams and his research team at BYU and Yale University and has become standard procedure in more than 400 laboratories in more than 35 countries worldwide.

Adams earned his doctoral degree from Ohio State University in 1979. He is the recipient of the National Science Foundation Presidential Young Investigator Award.

ASM International is a worldwide network of more than 40,000 members dedicated to advancing industry, technology and applications of metals and materials.

The society established the honor of fellow in 1969 to provide recognition of members for distinguished contributions in the field of materials science and engineering, and to develop a broadly based forum for technical and professional leaders to serve as advisors to the society.

Because 60% of biology undergraduates nationwide are female, the life sciences have long been thought to enjoy more gender equity than other STEM fields. But a new BYU study challenges the notion that all is well for gender parity in biology classrooms.
