Surya R. Kalidindi earned a B.Tech. in Civil Engineering from Indian Institute of Technology, Madras, an M.S. in Civil Engineering from Case Western Reserve University, and a Ph.D. in Mechanical Engineering from Massachusetts Institute of Technology. After his graduation from MIT in 1992, Surya joined the Department of Materials Science and Engineering at Drexel University as an Assistant Professor. In just eight years, he was promoted to the position of the Department Head. Although he was the youngest person to serve as the Department Head, the department experienced tremendous growth during his tenure. The growth of the department was recognized in the annual rankings by Academic Analysts, where it was ranked #10 nationally among Materials Science and Engineering programs in 2006. During 2008-2010, Surya served as the Department Head of Mechanical Engineering at Drexel University. He has also served as the Director of the Centralized Research Facilities in the College of Engineering at Drexel University during 2000-2010. Surya's research efforts over the past two decades have made seminal contributions to the fields of crystal plasticity and microstructure design. His work has already produced about 30 PhDs, over 150 articles in refereed journals, four book chapters, and a new book on Microstructure Sensitive Design to be published by Elsevier in 2012. His work is well cited by peer researchers as reflected by a h-index of 34 and a current citation rate of over 500 citations/year (based on Web of Science). Surya serves as the Director of an NSF REU Site and a DoEd GAANN program at Drexel University. Surya served as a co-Editor-in-Chief of Computers, Materials & Continua (CMC) published by Tech Science Press from 2007-2011. Surya has been elected as a Fellow of ASM International, ASME, and Alpha Sigma Mu (Materials Honors Society).
