Welcome to the Guduru Lab site!

Prof. Pradeep Guduru’s research interests span a variety of problems in Experimental Solid Mechanics such as Mechanics of Energy Storage Materials, Mechanics in Catalysis, Contact Mechanics of Soft Materials and Dynamic Deformation and Fracture of Heterogemeous Materials. Guduru's office is located at 729 Barus and Holley; the lab is located at 634 Barus and Holley and 109 Prince Laboratory. The thrust of the current research is on problems at the interface between Solid Mechanics and Chemistry, with applications to energy technologies. Guduru is currently serving as the principal investigator on two research programs on this theme: Rhode Island's DOE EPSCoR Implementation Progam on "Fundamental Investigations of Mechanical and Chemical Degradation Mechanisms in Li-ion Battery Materials" and ARO MURI on "Stress Controlled Catalysis via Engineered Nanostructures."
