he was a faculty member at the State University of New York at Stony Brook, and before
that a post-doctoral scholar at the California Institute of Technology.
Raman's research interests are in the failure mechanics of advanced and complex material
systems, with an emphasis on the development of new techniques for material failure
characterization. His academic interests are in recruiting, mentorship, and retention
of non-traditional and underrepresented student groups. His research has been funded
by the National Science Foundation, NASA, the Oklahoma Center for the Advancement
of Science & Technology, the Oklahoma Transportation Commission, the US Army Research
Office, the Department of Energy, and industry. He has authored or co-authored several
archival journal publications and conference proceedings, and holds two patents. He
is an active member of the Society of Experimental Mechanics (SEM) and the American
Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME). He serves as an Associate Technical Editor
for Experimental Mechanics. Besides academia, Raman enjoys travel, restoring cars,
backpacking, and photography.
