SACRAMENTO, CA (TIP): Three Indian-Americans and as many persons from India are among 29 people, who have been named as Fellows this year by the American Society for Metals, for their contributions in the field of materials science and engineering.
The Indian-Origin Fellows are Pranesh Aswath, Suveen Mathaudhu, Muthukumarasamy Sadayappan – while the achievers from India are – Pradeep Goyal, Vivekanand Kain, and Gankidi Madhusudhan Reddy.
Aswath is a professor and associate dean for the University of Texas at the Austin College of Engineering. He was selected for his significant contributions to the science of tribology through establishing fundamental relationships between lubricant additive chemistry, tribofilm formation and friction and wear.
Mathaudhu is an assistant professor at U.C. Riverside. He was selected for his scientific leadership, management, and advocacy of the U.S. Army materials research efforts, and in particular for the development and support of new advanced lightweight metals and bulk nanostructured materials.
The fellowship was created in 1969 to provide recognition to ASM members for their distinguished contributions to materials science and engineering, and to develop a broad-based forum of technical and professional leaders to serve as advisers to society.
The fellows will be presented with their awards for the recognition during the Materials Science and Technology 2015 event in Columbus, Ohio, in October.
