Harish P. Cherukuri is a Professor and Chair in the Department of Mechanical Engineering and Engineering Science at the University of North Carolina Charlotte. He was a Senior Fulbright-Nehru research fellow in India in 2010-11 and the Interim Chair of his Department from July 2012 to August 2013. He obtained his Ph.D. from the Department of Theoretical and Applied Mechanics at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign in 1994. His research interests are in computational mechanics, modeling of material removal and metal-forming processes, high-temperature behavior of super-alloys, residual stresses in aluminum alloys due to heat-treating, wave propagation, particle-based methods, and the application of machine learning in manufacturing and materials science.
