Dr Satyesh Kumar Yadav completed his PhD from the University of Connecticut in 2013. He was a postdoctoral fellow at Los Alamos National Laboratory from 2013 to 2016. He joined the Metallurgical and Materials Engineering department at IIT Madras in December 2016. He earned his B.Tech degree from IIT Roorkee in the year 2008. He heads the Materials Design lab, which aims to design materials by understating the processing-structure-property relationship at the atomic level. He introduced a course on Atomistic Modelling of Materials. The course has been helping students to learn how to model materials as a set of atoms using quantum mechanics-based density functional theory (DFT). His lab develops methods to stabilize ultra-thin noble metal films supported on ceramic substrates using a magnetron sputtering machine and atomistic modelling-assisted processing parameters.
