Dr. Lindemann specializes in materials science and metallurgy with specific expertise in the solidification and growth kinetics of metals, including Al and Zn alloys, among others. Prior to joining Exponent, Dr. Lindemann completed his Ph.D. in Materials Science and Engineering at the University of Michigan Ann Arbor. His research employed recent developments in X-ray imaging and machine learning to deepen our understanding of pattern formation and evolution within multi-phase alloys which affect material properties and may be used to improve predictions on service life. Through his research, Dr. Lindemann also gained proficiency in material synthesis, advanced data analysis techniques, and material thermodynamics

Dr. Lindemann previously was a research scientist at Ames National Laboratory. In this role, he designed experimental procedures intended to manufacture previously unknown ceramic compounds and characterize their novel magnetic properties and propensity for superconductivity.

Dr. Lindemann has expertise in a wide range of characterization techniques, including scanning electron microscopy (SEM), electron backscatter diffraction (EBSD), focused ion beam milling (FIB), and X-ray transmission tomography. He is also well versed in data analytics, image processing, and machine learning, especially genetic optimization.
