Dr. Kumar has research interests in the area of mechanics of advanced materials and structures at different length scales. He obtained his PhD in Solid Mechanics and Materials Engineering from the Department of Engineering Science, University of Oxford and an MPhil in Mechanical & Aerospace Engineering from the University of Southampton. He also received another master’s from the Indian Institute of Science (IISc) and attended graduate school at the Indian Institute of Technology (IIT), Madras. He was a visiting faculty at Massachusetts Institute of Technology from Dec 2011 – Jan 2013. He has also held a Post-doctoral position in the Materials Department at the University of California, Santa Barbara. Dr. S Kumar held several R&D positions (including a Scientist post in an aero-engine defense R&D lab) spanning about a decade, working on computational modelling and design of materials &structures, before heading to the UK.
\r\nHe has won several awards including EPSRC award at Oxford and Rolls-Royce/DTI Fellowship at Southampton and has an impressive record of publications in peer reviewed international journals. He has edited a book on Advances in Modeling and Design of Adhesive Bonded Systems (Wiley-Scrivener 2013). He serves on the editorial advisory board of the Journal of Adhesion Science and Technology (USA) and the Journal of Multifunctional Composites (USA). Dr. Kumar leads Advanced Materials and Multi-functional Structures (AM2S) Group at Masdar Institute (MI). He is a senior member of AIAA and is an active member of ASME, SAA UK and MRS India.
