Vinamra Agrawal

Agrawal outsideDr. Vinamra Agrawal received his PhD in Mechanical Engineering from California Institute of Technology. Before joining Auburn, he worked as a Postdoctoral scholar in joint collaborative project between Caltech and Jet Propulsion Laboratory. He received his Masters in Mechanical Engineering from Caltech in 2012 and Bachelors in Mechanical Engineering from Indian Institute of Technology at Kanpur in 2011.  


His research interests lie in the mechanics of materials under extreme environments. He works with a range of materials including fiber reinforced composites, polymers, metals, geological materials and ferroic materials. He works on material modeling and simulations at multiple length scales and designing materials targeted at specific application by understanding fundamental processes at different length scales. He also does high strain rate experiments, where the goal is to characterize materials under high strain rate environments. His long term vision is to design multifunctional materials from a microscale targeted at specific applications such as damage mitigation, tunable materials and energy harvesting.
