A leader in computational materials design will bring an industry perspective to the Harvard School of Engineering and Applied Sciences (SEAS) this year.
Sadasivan Shankar will be the first Distinguished Scientist in Residence at the Institute for Applied Computational Science (IACS) at SEAS from August until December 2013.
He will join the institute to teach a graduate-level course, computational design of materials. During his residence, he will also give invited lectures, advise students on their projects, and exchange ideas about in silico materials design with Harvard researchers.
Shankar is senior principal engineer and led materials design in the design and technology group within the Intel technology and manufacturing organisation. He will spend the term at SEAS under a sabbatical arrangement sponsored by Intel.
