Rajendra Bordia
Clemson University, USA

Since April 2013, Rajendra Bordia has been a Professor and the Chair of the Department of Materials Science and Engineering at Clemson University. From 1991-2013, he was a faculty member in the Materials Science and Engineering Department at the University of Washington, Seattle. At University of Washington, he was the Acting Chair (1996-1998) and the Chair (1998-2005) of his Department. Prior to joining the University of Washington, he was a Research Scientist in the Central Research & Development department of DuPont Co. (1986-91). He has had Visiting Professor appointments at the Indian Institute of Technology Kanpur, the Indian Institute of Science, Bangalore and the Friedrich-Alexander Universitat, Erlangen-Nrnberg, Germany. He is currently a Guest professor at IIT Gandhinagar. He received his undergraduate degree in Mechanical Engineering from Indian Institute of Technology, Kanpur, India (1979) and his M.S. (1981) and Ph.D. (1986) degrees in Materials Science and Engineering from Cornell University, Ithaca, NY, USA.

Prof. Bordia is an internationally recognized scholar whose research is at the intersection of materials science and mechanics and is focused on fundamental and applied studies in the processing and properties of complex material systems for energy, environmental and high temperature applications. Current emphasis is on integrating multi-scale simulations and experimental research to design complex microstructures. He and his research group were key and pioneering contributors in the development of a new continuum mechanics based approach for the constrained and stress-assisted sintering of ceramics. Other areas in which his research group has made significant contributions are processing and microstructural control of complex oxides, processing and mechanics of hierarchical porous materials, and polymer derived ceramic nanostructured, composites, porous ceramics and coatings. He has authored or co-authored 135 peer-reviewed technical publications, over 130 technical reports and has presented over 250 invited lectures and seminars in Asia, Europe, Africa and North America. In his academic career, he is or has been the PI or Co-PI for over $ 40 Million research funding.

In 2002, he was elected as a Fellow of the American Ceramic Society, in 2010 a Fellow of the Indian Institute of Metals and in 2012 as an Academician in the World Academy of Ceramics. He has received other prestigious awards including: Humboldt Senior Scientist Research award from the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation, Germany (2007); National Young Investigator award (NSF) (1992-1997). He is also a dedicated teacher and mentor. He was the sole recipient of the Marsha Landolt Distinguished Graduate Mentor award from the University of Washington (2007) and was the sole recipient of the Outstanding Educator of the Year by the Ceramic Education Council of the American Ceramic Society (2012).

Prof. Bordia is an Associate Editor of the Journal of the American Ceramic Society (1988-present); Editor of the Journal of Ceramic Processing Research (1999-present) and Editor-in-Chief of the Ceramics International Journal (2009 C present). He was a member of the Board of Directors of the American Ceramic Society (2008-2010).
