Pierre A. Deymier is a professor of materials science and engineering at the University of Arizona. He is also a faculty member in the BIO5 Institute, biomedical engineering program and applied mathematics graduate interdisciplinary program. Deymier received his PhD from the Department of Materials Science and Engineering at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in 1985 and subsequently joined the University of Arizona.
Deymier has a wide range of interests in the field of materials science and engineering including materials theory, modeling and simulation, the emerging field of acoustic metamaterials and phononic crystals and topological acoustics as well as biomaterials. He is the author or co-author of more than 240 scholarly products. He is the editor, author or co-author of three books: P.A. Deymier Ed., “Phononic crystals and acoustic metamaterials,” Springer Series in Solid-State Sciences, 173, Springer, Berlin, (2013); P.A. Deymier, K. Runge and K. Muralidharan (Co-Eds) “Multiscale Paradigms in Integrated Computational Materials Science and Engineering,” Springer Series in Materials Science, 226, Springer, Berlin, (2015); and P.A. Deymier, K. Runge, “Sound Topology, Duality, Coherence and Wave-Mixing: An Introduction to the Emerging New Science of Sound,” Springer Series in Solid-State Sciences, 188, (2017).
