ESR 4 – Shreyas Srivatsa

Shreyas Srivatsa received his Master’s degree in Aerospace Engineering (2017) from the University of Maryland (UMD), College Park, USA, and
Bachelor’s degree in Mechanical Engineering (2014) from the University
Visvesvaraya College of Engineering (UVCE), Bangalore University,
Bangalore, India. In the past, he held positions of Research Associate
(2017-18) and Project Assistant (2015) at the Indian Institute of
Science (IISc), Bangalore.

His research interests include Structural Dynamics, Linear and Nonlinear
Finite Element Methods, Smart Structures, Structural Dynamics of
Electric Machines, MEMS, and Energy Systems. Prior to joining the DyVirt
project, he worked with an interdisciplinary team of researchers at
IISc, Bangalore on the “Design, Development and Control of High-speed
Switched Reluctance Generator for Direct-coupled Operation with Thermal
Turbo-machinery”. He has a few conference and journal papers along with
a few patents lined up as an output from this project work. He has also
been a part of the collaboration between IISc, Bangalore, and Sandia
National Labs, USA for the development of the “Experimental Test
Facility for Supercritical Carbon-di-oxide (s-CO2) Brayton Cycle Loop”
at IISc, Bangalore, India.

After joining the DyVirt project research group at AGH University of
Science and Technology, he has been working on developing multi-scale
and multi-domain models for MXene nanomaterial-based composites. His
focus is on developing smart structures and sensors with MXene
nanomaterials for the mechanical, aerospace, and energy sectors.
Currently, he is involved in building a computational framework for
MXene nanocomposites, modeling them across different length scales. He
is also studying the effects due to dynamic loads on nanomaterial-based
smart structures.
