Dr. Narayan Sundaram
My research interests lie in a broad area that is best termed "interfacial solid mechanics", including contact mechanics, adhesion, indentation, and large strain plasticity in metals processing (deformation processing, machining) with a focus on polycrystalline aggregates. I am also interested in non-standard continua and computational plasticity.
Prior to joining IISc, I was a Postdoctoral Research Associate at the Center for Materials Processing and Tribology, Purdue University. I hold a Ph.D in Aeronautics & Astronautics and MS in Materials Science from Purdue, and a BTech from IIT Roorkee. Click here or here for my advisors webpages.
