Summary: Baidurya Bhattacharya specializes in the application of probabilistic methods in engineering problems. A large part of his current activities involves the mechanics of nanoscale systems and how these are affected by the presence of randomly occurring atomic scale defects. The focus of this work has been carbon nanotubes and nanotube based composites. Prof. Bhattacharya also continues to work on the reliability and probability based design of large infrastructural systems such as nuclear power plants, ship and offshore structures and bridges. He has lately started looking at the vulnerability of such structures from terroristic attacks. Baidurya Bhattacharya grew up in Kolkata and obtained his BTech in Civil Engineering from IIT Kharagpur in 1991. He then went on to Baltimore, MD and attended the Johns Hopkins University on a PhD fellowship, and completed his doctoral dissertation in 1997. More importantly, he met his future wife on the Hopkins campus during this time. Hours were spent riding the shuttle bus between Hopkins' Homewood and Medical School campuses, with frequent stopovers at the magical George Peabody Music Library. They were married in the summer of 97. After completing his postdoctoral work, Prof. Bhattacharya worked for the American Bureau of Shipping for two years. He then returned to academia and was on the faculty of the University of Delaware for four years, and a visiting faculty at Stanford University in 2005. In early 2006, the Bhattacharyas moved to India with their daughter, and the couple took up faculty positions at IIT Kharagpur. They had a son in 2007. Prof. Bhattacharya now enjoys a quiet life in the languid campus of his alma mater and re-reads the Harry Potter novels every night after he has put his son and daughter to sleep to the medley of melodies he has to expediently compose and sing to them every night.
