Devendra Verma PhD
Devendra Verma is a doctoral candidate in AAE with his research focused on understanding how interfaces in different material systems contribute to the deformation and fracture mechanisms. He has developed experimental techniques to characterize and develop material model for finite thickness interfaces in glass/epoxy systems, demonstrating the strain-rate dependence of interface deformation. His experimental expertise include Nanoindentation, Nano-Impact and Nanomechanical Raman Spectroscopy. He has received several awards such as Purdue Graduate Student Excellence Award, Purdue Outstanding Service Scholarship in addition to travel awards from NSF, USACM, SES, ASME, ERASMUS.
