Aditya Kumar

I am an Assistant Professor in the Structural Engineering, Mechanics and Materials group in the School of Civil and Environmental Engineering at Georgia Tech, which I joined in the Fall of 2022.

I work in the area of applied mechanics. Specifically, I am interested in solving fundamental problems in mechanics with a combination of new mathematical and computational tools. Current focus areas include fracture, evolving biological materials, and 3D printing of polymer composites.

I got my Bachelor's degree from IIT Delhi.

I received my PhD from Illinois, where I was advised by Oscar Lopez-Pamies. My thesis work was on developing a unified theory of nucleation and propagation of fracture and healing in elastomers.

Afterwards, I was a postdoctoral researcher in Aerospace Engineering at Illinois, advised by Philippe Geubelle.
