My name is Marat I. Latypov, I am a materials scientist, data scientist, visualization and programming enthusiast. At the moment, I am a researcher at University of Lorraine.

The areas of my expertise include

  • crystal plasticity
  • finite element analysis of metal forming and micromechanics
  • EBSD analysis
  • statistical description and quantification of microstructures
  • data-driven modeling of heterogeneous materials
  • MATLAB and Python

At the moment, I am most excited about interactive visualization (e.g. D3.js) and data sciences.
