Dr. Narayan Sundaram
My research interests are primarily in interfacial solid mechanics, including contact mechanics, adhesion, indentation, large strain plasticity in metals processing (sliding, machining, micromechanics of poly -crystalline aggregates). I am also interested in non-standard continua and computational plasticity.
I was a Postdoctoral Research Associate at the Center for Materials Processing and Tribology, Purdue University with Prof. Srinivasan "Chandy" Chandrasekar. I hold a Ph.D in Aeronautics & Astronautics and MS in Materials Science from Purdue, and a BTech from IIT Roorkee. My PhD thesis advisor was Tom Farris.
