Research Interests

  • Satish T. S. Bukkapatnam received his Ph.D. and M.S. degrees in industrial and manufacturing engineering from the Pennsylvania State University. He currently serves as Rockwell International Professor with the Department of Industrial and Systems Engineering department at Texas A&M University, College Station, TX, USA. He is also the Director of Texas A&M Engineering Experimentation Station (TEES) Institute for Manufacturing Systems. His research in smart manufacturing addresses the harnessing of high-resolution nonlinear dynamic information, especially from wireless MEMS sensors, to improve the monitoring and prognostics, mainly of ultraprecision and nanomanufacturing processes and machines, and wearable sensors for cardiorespiratory process prognostics. His research has led to over 160 peer-reviewed publications (101 published/ accepted in journals and 68 in conference proceedings); five pending patents; $6.5 million in grants as PI/Co-PI from the National Science Foundation, the U.S. Department of Defense, and the private sector; and 17 best-paper/poster recognitions. He is a fellow of the Institute for Industrial and Systems Engineers (IISE), and the Society of Manufacturing Engineers (SME), and his work has been recognized with Oklahoma State University regents distinguished research, Halliburton outstanding college of engineering faculty, and Fulbright-Tocqueville distinguished chair awards.
