Dr. Malur Srinivasan earned his Ph.D. for his work on solidification of castings at the Indian Institute of Science, where he was a faculty member in the department of mechanical engineering for over twenty years. He taught and did research in the area of metal castings. He has supervised the dissertations of eight doctoral scholars and several master of science theses in the area of metal castings, resulting in over 50 publications. He expanded his research field to cover superplasticity, ultrasonic evaluation of residual stress, modeling of continuous casting, preparation and consolidation of nanomaterials and others, after his move to the United States in 1988. He is presently a professor of mechanical engineering at Lamar University in Beaumont, Texas, USA.
