The Shankar Research Group performs research in the Department of Industrial Engineering at the University of Pittsburgh under the direction of Prof. Ravi Shankar Meenakshisundaram. Our research focuses on understanding the behavior of materials over length-scales ranging from the macro to the nano, as a function of composition, thermomechanical history and microstructural design. Research interests include thermal and mechanical behavior of nanocrystalline metals and amorphous alloys, mechanics and property evolution in nano and micro-manufacturing processes and design of multi-functional materials.

The multidisciplinary nature of this research offers stimulating opportunities for experimental and theoretical studies involving synthesis of a variety of concepts from solid mechanics, materials science, solid state physics and thermodynamics.
