Dr. Russell J. Hemley explores the nature of materials in extreme environments, specifically high pressures and temperatures. The work includes high-pressure experimental and theoretical studies in chemistry and physics, earth and planetary science, soft matter and biology, and the creation of new materials for technology using extreme conditions. After three decades at the Geophysical Laboratory and the Carnegie Institution of Washington, he moved to George Washington University where he is a research professor in the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering. He also serves as the director of the Department of Energy/Carnegie Alliance, director of Energy Frontier Research in Extreme Environments, chair of the JASON Advisory Group, and co-executive director of the Deep Carbon Observatory.
