SEM Awards: MSISPC Winner

Vatsa Gandhi is a current Ph.D. student at the Graduate Aerospace Laboratories at Caltech working on understanding the dynamic behavior of materials from the atomistic to macroscopic spatial scales. He is interested in exploring phenomena ranging from phase transformations and failure mechanisms to dynamic strength of materials undergoing high strain rate deformations using a combination of plate impact experiments and numerical simulations. Prior to starting his Ph.D., Vatsa earned his Bachelor’s of Science in Aerospace Engineering from The University of Texas at Austin in 2018, and his Masters of Science from Caltech in 2019.
