Dr. Dinakar Sagapuram has joined the Department of Industrial and Systems Engineering at Texas A&M University as an assistant professor.

Sagapuram comes to Texas A&M from Purdue University where he earned his Ph.D. in material engineering. His research broadly focuses on manufacturing, materials processes and tribology.

His contributions include development of new process technology for creating fine-grained sheet and foil from poor-workability alloys and methods for controlling flow instability occurrences in machining processes. He has authored or co-authored over 15 peer-reviewed journal and conference publications and three U.S. patent applications in these areas.

“I am excited to begin my teaching career at one of the top engineering schools in the nation,” Sagapuram said. “This fall, I will be teaching ISEN 654: Manufacturing Systems, Planning and Analysis.”
