Materials Research Engineer
US Army Research Laboratory
Raymond Wildman is a Materials Research Engineer with the US Army Research Laboratory since 2010. He received the Ph.D., M.E.E, and B.E.E in Electrical Engineering from the University of Delaware in 2008, 2005, and 2003 respectively. While at the University of Delaware, Dr. Wildman researched and developed improved methods for solving time domain integral equations of electromagnetic scattering in the microwave regime. He also developed topology optimization methods for solving inverse scattering problems including both conducting objects and inhomogeneous dielectrics. Dr. Wildman joined ARL in 2007 as a post-doctoral researcher, initially working on topology optimization methods for the design of phononic bandgap materials and the inversion of buried structures using their gravitational and magnetic fields. Since then, he has researched peridynamics-based methods for the simulation of fracture in brittle elastic solids, coupled multi-physics methods for simulating dielectric breakdown, and topology optimization methods for energy absorbing structures, multifunctional applications, and additive manufacturing.
