Naga Bharath Gundrati
Recent M.S. Mechanical Engineering graduate
I am Naga Bharath Gundrati born in Hyderabad, TG, India in 1993. I received my undergraduate Bachelor of Technology degree in Mechanical Engineering from SRM University in Chennai in 2015. Following my undergraduate education, I attended State University of New York at Buffalo to obtain my Master of Science degree in Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering. My research work at Composite Materials Research Laboratory was on self-sensing capabilities of polymeric resin used in 3D printing stereolithography technique under the guidance of Dr. Deborah Chung.
After gaining knowledge on polymeric materials, I returned to my hometown in India to work at my family-owned pharmaceutical company, Rashmi Pharma Pvt. Ltd. There I worked as an Executive Director handling various responsibilities including process optimization, process development, Quality Assurance/Quality Control, etc. To further advance my academic and technical knowledge in the field of mechanical engineering I joined the Ph.D. program in Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering, at Old Dominion University (ODU), Norfolk, VA.
At ODU, I worked under the guidance of Dr. Dipankar Ghosh in the Laboratory of Advanced Manufacturing of Materials from August 2019 where I learned about ceramics and their processing in detail. I changed my program of study to Master of Science to support my family affected by the financial crisis due to the Covid-19 pandemic by working full-time. I graduated in August 2021 with a GPA of 3.8/4 and am actively seeking full-time positions.
