Dr. Ranji Vaidyanathan, OSU-Tulsa materials science and engineering professor within the OSU College of Engineering, Architecture and Technology, has been chosen to be the Deputy Technical Chair of the Composites and Materials Expo (CAMX) Conference for 2019.
Created by the American Composites Manufacturers Association and the Society for the Advancement of Material and Process Engineering (SAMPE) to connect and advance all aspects of the world’s composites and advanced materials communities, CAMX is an all-encompassing event.
This CAMX Conference is one of the foremost technical conference in the composites materials field in North America and consists of emerging leaders in SAMPE with technical knowledge and career experience.
“It is an honor to be selected as one of the organizers of the premier composites conference in the world by experts in the field and to work together with industry and academic experts to choose topics and papers to be presented by students, faculty and industry experts,” said Vaidyanathan.
SAMPE has more than 2000 members including student members, and Oklahoma State University has a local student chapter which Vaidyanathan is the advisor.
Vaidyanathan is a professor of materials science and engineering at the Helmerich Research Center at OSU-Tulsa, he is a faculty fellow with the Riata Center for Entrepreneurship at the School of Entrepreneurship, Spears School of Business at OSU, and has a joint appointment with the School of Chemical Engineering in CEAT.
He works collaboratively with faculty members from various disciplines and colleges to develop products and solutions for Oklahoma small manufacturers, and works with the HRC faculty to develop a major research and technology transfer thrust in composite materials.
