Jonathan D. Madison, Ph.D., is a research scientist at Sandia National Laboratories, in Albuquerque, New Mexico within the Material, Physical and Chemical Sciences Center. Madison received his Bachelors degree from Clark Atlanta University in Engineering Science with a concentration in Mechanical Engineering in 2003, and received his M.S. and Ph.D. in Materials Science and Engineering from the University of Michigan in 2007 and 2010 respectively. Throughout his academic matriculation, Jonathan has supported basic and applied research at Washington State University, Pullman WA; the Naval Research Laboratory, Washington, D.C.; and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in Cambridge, Massachusetts. The department he currently serves provides multi-scale, experimental characterization that enables materials-based insight and solutions.

Professionally, Jonathan maintains active membership in The Association for Iron & Steel Technology (AIST), ASM International (ASM), The American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME) and The Minerals, Metals and Materials Society (TMS). A few recent accolades to Madison’s credit include; Sandia National Laboratories – Early Career LDRD Award (2010), Lead Guest Editor, Special Issue on 3D Materials Science, Integrating Materials and Manufacturing Innovation, Springer (2014), Albuquerque Business Journal’s “Forty Under 40” (2015), Black Engineer of the Year Awards – “Most Promising Scientist in Industry” (2015), and Lead Organizer, 3rd TMS National Summit on Diversity in the Minerals, Metals & Materials Professions (2018). During his tenure at Sandia, Madison spearheaded a new in-house characterization capability by acquiring capital equipment within his first two years. As a result, Madison is expanding the customer base for materials characterization, developing new technical partnerships to conduct world-class research, and leading complimentary modeling projects to leverage novel experimental capabilities.

Jonathan’s research interests focus on the intersections of experimental and computational techniques for threedimensional reconstructions of microstructure, quantitative characterization of these structures and accompanying models of microstructural evolution. Dr. Madison has 21 peer-reviewed journal articles, 7 D.O.E. published technical reports, and over 240 citations.
