Nikhil Gupta Joins Editorial Board of ASTM Journal

NYU Polytechnic School of Engineering Associate Professor Nikhil Gupta recently joined the editorial board of the journal Materials Performance and Characterization published by ASTM International, formerly known as the American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM). This flagship materials related journal of ASTM is aimed at addressing practical aspects of the processing, structure, properties, and performance of materials used in mechanical, transportation, energy and medical devices. The society establishes standards, test methods, specifications, guides, and practices that support industries and governments worldwide, and publishes eight different peer-reviewed journals.

Gupta is a faculty member in the Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering and the winner of an ASM International (formerly the American Society for Metals) Silver Medal in 2013, which recognizes a career of distinguished contributions in the field of materials science and engineering. His research areas include lightweight materials, micro and nano-composites, biomaterials and bio-inspired materials, and damage sensing.
