Research Assistant Professor, Mechanical Engineering
Dr. Garrison Hommer is a Research Assistant Professor in the Mechanical Engineering Department at the Colorado School of Mines. He received his BS in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Minnesota, Twin Cities, then worked on mechanical design in the particle technology industry and quality engineering in the medical device industry. Hommer received his PhD in Mechanical Engineering from the Colorado School of Mines in 2018, during which he studied biaxial dwell fatigue in titanium using high-energy diffraction microscopy. He currently manages the Advanced Manufacturing Teaching Lab and the Mechanical Testing Labs within Mines’ Shared Instrumentation Facility (SIF). His research broadly involves mechanical testing of traditional and additive alloys, including hydrogen embrittlement, high and low temperature, fatigue, and digital image correlation (DIC).
