Siva Prasad Varma Nadimpalli

Associate Professor


Siva obtained his PhD (2011) from University of Toronto, MSc (Engg) (2005) from the Indian Institute of Science, and B.E (2002) from Andhra University, all in Mechanical Engineering. After completing his MS, Siva worked in GE Wind Energy group as a Mechanical Engineer where he carried out projects involving prototype testing  of  wind  turbines  and  design  of  turbine  components.  After finishing the PhD, he worked as a postdoctoral research  associate  in  School  of Engineering  at  Brown University, and prior to joining Michigan State University, Siva was a faculty member at the New Jersey Institute of Technology from 2013 to 2019.

Siva Nadimpalli's research interests are in the broad area of experimental solids mechanics and fracture mechanics. His current research focus is to understand mechanical and electrochemical behavior of various battery electrode materials by using in situ experimental methods. He received  the  prestigious NSF  CAREER  award  in  2017.
