Nikhil Gupta joined the NYU-Poly faculty in 2004 as an Assistant Professor in the Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering and was promoted to the rank of Associate Professor in 2010.
His research focuses on processing and structure property correlation for particulate composites and sandwich structures; modeling and development of multifunctional micro-and nano-composite materials; sensing damage and structural health-monitoring techniques including embedded sensors ultrasonic imaging; and biomaterials and bio-inspired materials.
He has presented 24 invited lectures and authored 3 book chapters, over 47 journals, and 75 conference publications and presentations.
A 1996 graduate of the University of Rajasthan in Jaipur, India, Gupta earned a Master of Engineering in Metallurgical Engineering (1998) from the Indian Institute of Science in Bangalore, India and a PhD in Engineering Science (2003) from Louisiana State University.
Gupta is the recipient of numerous awards including the 2007 and 2009 Visiting Lectureship Award from the American Society for Metals-Indian Institute of Metals, the Air Force Summer Faculty Fellowship administered by the American Society of Engineering Education, and the Junior Faculty Fellow, Othmer Institute for Interdisciplinary Studies, Polytechnic Institute of NYU.
He is a member of the Composites Materials Committee of TMS and ASM-International as well as the editorial board of Composites Part B: Engineering, Elsevier, and the editorial advisory board of Scientific Journals International.
