Welcome to the Guduru Lab site!

Prof. Pradeep Guduru’s research interests span problems in Experimental Solid Mechanics such as Mechanics of Energy Storage Materials, Dynamic Response of Materials and Structures, Contact Mechanics and Mechanics of nano-scale structures. 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 (i) problems at the interface between Solid Mechanics and Chemistry, with applications to energy sciences/technologies; (ii) microstructural design of structural materials. Prof. Guduru is serving as the principal investigator on Rhode Island's DOE EPSCoR Implementation Progam on "Fundamental Investigations of Mechanical and Chemical Degradation Mechanisms in Li-ion Battery Materials;" click on the link for more details on the program. Prof. Guduru is also serving as the Principal Investigator of the ARO MURI on "Stress Controlled Catalysis via Engineered Nanostructures." In addition, he also serves as the concentration advisor for Mechanical Engineering in the School of Engineering.
