|Dr. Ravi Penmetsa joined the Department
of Mechanical and Materials Engineering as an Assistant
Professor in January 2003. He received his Bachelor of
Mechanical Engineering degree from the Andhra University,
India, and his Ph.D. degree in Mechanical Engineering
from Wright State University. Prior to starting as a faculty
Dr. Penmetsa was working as a senior research associate
on a project sponsored by Wright Patterson Air Force Base.
His research interests are in uncertainty quantification,
robust design, design optimization, and finite element
methods. Much of his research focused on developing uncertainty
quantification techniques that would enable analytically
certification of complex nonlinear-systems. Dr. Penmetsa
received Young Researcher Fellowship award
for his research work published at First MIT conference
on computational solid and fluid mechanics. Dr.
Penmetsa is the author of several conference and archival
journal papers, and is a member of ASME and AIAA.
