Dr. R. Ponalagusamy is currently working as a Professor and guiding research students in the fields of development of parallel algorithm, DNA Computing, Fuzzy Decision Making and Biomechanics/Biorheology. He is also guiding research students in the fields of parallel numerical computing and Digital Image Processing. He received his Ph.D. in “Blood Flow through Stenosed Artery” from the Indian Institute of Technology, Bombay, in 1986. The Environmental Research Corporation, Tokyo, Japan, awarded him a post-doctoral fellowship for two years (1987-1988) at Chuo University, Tokyo. His prior work experience includes Lecturer and doing research in the field of Computational Fluid Mechanics, Assistant Professor and doing research in the development of Mathematical and Computer models in the field of Processing of Advanced Materials. He has so far produced Eleven Ph.Ds. in the fields of Computer models on Metal forming, DNA Computing, Image Processing, Parallel Algorithms and Biomechanics. He has been one of the Regional Editors in several International Journals and Associate Editor in International Journal. He is Editor-in-Chief, International Journal of Engineering Sciences, Advanced Computing and Bio-Technology (IJESACBT). He has been reviewer for more than fifteen International Journals. He has written two books on (i) Theory of Engineering Plasticity and (ii) Engineering Mathematics. He has published over 140 research papers in National and International Conferences and Journals (Thirty eight different International Journals). His current research areas include computational experimentation on bio-fluid mechanics including heat and mass transfer, plastic flow, finite element method, computer models on metal forming and powder metallurgical materials, wavelets, digital image processing, DNA Computing, Fuzzy Logic and development of parallel algorithms.
