Rajeev Gupta

Associate Professor

Rajeev received his B.S. in materials and metallurgical engineering from the Indian Institute of Technology Kanpur, India and Ph.D. in materials engineering from Monash University, Australia. Prior to joining the NC State University faculty, he was an assistant professor of chemical, biomolecular and corrosion engineering at the University of Akron, Ohio.

Research Interests

Rajeev’s primary research interests lie in the broad areas of corrosion and material engineering. His research group focuses on understanding the structure-processing-property-performance relationships, corrosion initiation and propagation mechanisms, and high temperature oxidation. The fundamental research is intended to be applied in developing new alloys, corrosion monitoring techniques, and prediction of corrosion damage. Rajeev’s research has been continuously funded by the NSF, ONR, DOD, DOE, and industries.
