Professor Guduru's research focusses on several aspects of Experimental Mechanics, with emphasis on phenomena at micro and nano length scales. The current active areas of research are: biologically inspired contact mechanics, adhesion and friction; developing nanofabrication strategies by means of guided self assembly using electric and magnetic fields; mechanics of carbon nanotubes: experiments and modeling; and mechanical behavior of biological tissues; and mechanics of energy storage materials.
Pradeep Guduru received Bachelor's degree in Mechanical Engineering from Sri Venkateswara University (Tirupati, India) and Master's degree in Aerospace Engineering from Indian Institute of Science (Bangalore, India). He received his PhD in Aeronautics from California Institute of Technology in 2001. Subsequently he joined the Division of Engineering at Brown University as a postdoctoral research associate and was appointed as an assistant professor of Engineering in 2002. He has been an associate professor of Engineering since 2008 and the James R. Rice Associate Professor of Engineering since January 2009.
