My name is Mogadalai Pandurangan Gururajan–MP Gururajan–Guru, if you will. I did my Ph D with Abi at the Department of Materials Engineering (then, Metallurgy), Indian Institute of Science, Bangalore, India. My area of specialisation is computational materials science. After my PhD, I was post-doc-ing with Peter at the Department of Materials Science and Engineering, Northwestern University, Evanston, Illinois, USA. At present, I am working as an Assistant Professor at the Department of Metallurgical Engineering and Materials Science, IIT-Bombay, Mumbai. In addition to this blog, I also blog at Materialia Indica, iMechanica, and maintain a technical blog called Materials, The Science of. When I am not researching or blogging, I watch movies, listen to music and read books–mostly novels.
