Randi Holmestad (born in 1967) is (since 99) a professor at Department of Physics, Norwegian University of science and Technology, NTNU in Trondheim, Norway. She has a PhD (Dr. ing.) in materials physics from NTH,Trondheim, in 1994 and a MSc (Siv. Ing.) in technical physics, from the same university in 1991. Holmestad’s present research interests are focussed on materials physics; transmission electron diffraction, microscopy and spectroscopy (TEM, HREM, EDS, EELS, STEM), materials microstructure and the relation to macroscopic properties, modelling and simulations in materials physics. Ongoing projects are on aluminium alloys, solar cell materials, electron diffraction and new functional materials. She has educated 14 PhD students and 55 MSc students, in addition to co-supervision of 6 PhD students.
