Manoj Gupta is an Associate Professor at the Department of Mechanical Engineering, National University of Singapore, Singapore. He did his Ph.D. degree (materials science) from University of California, Irvine, USA (1992), and postdoctoral research at University of Alberta, Canada. His core research areas are synthesis and characterization of advanced light materials. To his credit are (i) disintegrated melt deposition technique, a unique liquid-state processing method, and (ii) microwave sintering technique, an energy-efficient solid-state processing method, to synthesize Al and Mg light-metal alloys/micro/nanocomposites. Processing-structure-property relationships of light-metals and metal matrix composites are his prime focus in research. He has delivered 20 invited talks on his works which include the topics on design, development, and characterization of advanced light-materials (Al, Mg alloys/nanocomposites), functionally graded materials, metastable composites, and recycling. His accomplishments include (i) principle/coinvestigator for 15 national/international projects, (ii) supervisor for 10 Ph.D. degree and 25 M.S. degree students, (iii) 331 international publications (citations: 1950+, H-index: 22) and 135 international conferences, (iv) 4 patents, (v) authored 2 books, 3 book chapters, and edited 3 books, and (vi) reviewer for 26 international journals.
