Professor Keblinski received his Ph.D. from the Pennsylvania State University in 1995. Before he joined Rensselaer in 1999 he was a postdoctoral researcher at Argonne National Laboratory and worked at Forschungszentrum Karlsruhe in Germany as a recipient of an Alexander von Humboldt Fellowship. Professor Keblinski is an author or co-author of 129 papers on topics ranging from mesoscopic-level modeling of vapor deposition and phase separation to atomic-level structure and properties of interfaces in metals, covalent materials and ionic ceramics.
Professor Keblinski’s work is focused on the relationship between microstructure and various materials properties, such as mechanical response, diffusion, interfacial migration and phase diagram, in particular, of nano-structured materials. A major goal of Professor Keblinski’s work is to design and analyze computational models in order to gain insights into the nature of the material behavior and properties. These insights are than used to formulate theoretical concepts, to understand experimental results and to guide future experiments. Other interests include connecting atomic-level modeling with electronic-level studies as well as with the macroscopic description of the material based on constitutive models.

Professor Ramanath received his Ph.D. in Materials Science and Engineering from the University of Illinois-Urbana in 1997. His doctoral work won him a Materials Research Society Graduate Student Award (now known as the Gold Award). He obtained his B.Tech. in Metallurgical Engineering from the IIT, Madras, India, and his M.S. in Materials Science and Engineering from the University of Cincinnati. He was a staff member at Novellus Systems, CA, and a Visiting Scientist at the Physics Department of Linköping University, Sweden, before he joined the Rensselaer faculty in Fall 1998 as an Assistant Professor. He became a tenured Associate Professor in 2003, and was promoted to full Professor in 2006. He served as the Director of the Center for Future Energy Systems (CFES), a New York State Center for Advanced Technology (CAT) from April 2008 until Jan 2010.
He is a recipient of a Early CAREER Award from the National Science Foundation (2000), Prof. Bergmann Memorial Young Scientist Award from the US-Israel Binational Science Foundation (2003), and is a co-recipient of IBM Research Partnership Award (1999-2006), Best paper award IEEE Nano (Hong Kong, 2007). He has been a Visiting Professor at the International Center for Young Scientists, and the World Premier Institute for Materials Nanoarchitectronics (MANA, 2010) at the National Institute of Materials Science, Tsukuba, Japan (2004, 2010), the Nanoscale Science Department at the Max Planck Institute für Festkörperforschung, Stuttgart, Germany as an Alexander von Humboldt Fellow (2004-2005), the Indian Institute of Science, Bangalore, India (summer 2006), and the Institute for Superconducting and Electronic Materials, University of Wollogong, Australia (2007, 2010). He is an Associate Editor of IEEE Transactions on Nanotechnology since October 2003, and serves on the editorial advisory board of the Journal of Experimental Nanoscience and the The Open Materials Science Journal.
