MSMDG is an informal discussion group within the College of Engineering and Physical Sciences. We are interested in all aspects of materials modelling, and, as such, define “material” as broadly as possible. We are both theorists and experimentalists, and we model materials at all length scales. We are a Special Interest Group of the Birmingham Environment for Academic Research (BEAR).

MSMDG meets fortnightly at 2pm on Thursday. We try to alternate between Metallurgy and Materials (Met&Mat) and Chemistry (MSB). See Upcoming Talks for dates of the next meetings and planned speakers.

We have a low-volume mailing list for advertising our meetings and other relevant activities amongst ourselves. Please email Mateusz ( or Andrew ( to join the list.

All (including undergraduates) welcome.
