Dr. Glazer specializes in failure analysis, materials science, battery science, electrochemistry, materials characterization and mechanics of materials. His specialties include battery failure analysis, x-ray characterization and composite mechanics. Dr. Glazer’s experience includes X-ray diffraction (XRD), small-angle X-ray scattering (SAXS), electrochemical characterization techniques, composite materials evaluation, mechanical testing and microstructural evaluation using optical microscopy (OM) and scanning electron microscopy (SEM).

Prior to joining Exponent, Dr. Glazer completed his Ph.D. at Northwestern University, where his research examined mechanical failure and capacity fade mechanisms in lithium-ion battery anode materials. His research focused on understanding lithiation-induced strains and failures during operation in silicon- and tin-based anode materials utilizing in operando high-energy X-ray diffraction (IXRD)-based strain measurements. Dr. Glazer also worked closely with three x-ray scientists at Argonne National Laboratory to develop the novel experimental methodology required to conduct IXRD-based strain measurements, as well as two Korean and one American research groups to develop custom battery materials and cell formats suitable for IXRD characterization.

While at Northwestern, Dr. Glazer served as a teaching assistant for in-major Mechanics of Materials and Introduction to Materials Science courses in the department of Materials Science and Engineering. Additionally, Dr. Glazer founded, developed, and led an eight session seminar series providing a comprehensive, conceptual overview of various energy technologies for non-specialists, titled the “Technology of Energy Seminar Series,” for four years.
