Flores’ primary research interest is the mechanical behavior of high performance structural materials, with particular emphasis on understanding structure-processing-property relationships in bulk metallic glasses and their composites. She leads research projects on topics ranging from investigations of the structural origins of deformation in metallic glasses to the development of efficient strategies for the design of new glasses with desirable properties. She is particularly interested in the development of new manufacturing techniques suited to the unique processing capabilities of these alloys, in an effort to accelerate their incorporation in mainstream and high performance applications.
