Biographical Sketch

Dr. Ram Devireddy is the DeSoto Parish Chapter University Alumni Professor and the Louisiana Land & Exploration Company Endowed Chair Professor of Mechanical Engineering at Louisiana State University, Baton Rouge. Dr. Devireddy received his PhD from the University of Minnesota, Minneapolis (1999), MS from the University of Colorado, Boulder (1995) and his bachelor’s degree from the University of Madras, India(1993) in Mechanical Engineering. Dr. Devireddy’s primary research spans areas such as: stem cell preservation, miRNA directed differentiation, 3d bioprinting, tissue freezing (experimental and numerical), mammalian and aquatic sperm cell cryopreservation, modeling of chemical diffusion at macro- and micro-scales, nano- and micro-scale heat transfer phenomena, transcriptome profiling and next generation sequencing methods. Dr. Devireddy has received numerous honors and awards including a Brains (back) to Brussels Fellowship to visit Université Catholique de Louvain, Brussels (2009), and a Japan Society for Promotion of Science Fellowship to visit the Yokohama National University, Tokyo (2016).  Dr. Devireddy has received numerous awards including the LSU Tiger Athletic Foundation Undergraduate Teaching Award from the College of Engineering (2007 and 2011), the Dow Chemical Excellence in Teaching Award from the Department of Mechanical Engineering (2012, 2018, 2019 and 2023), the LSU Alumni Association Faculty Excellence Award (2013), the LSU Mechanical Engineering Ned Adler Teaching Award from the ASME student chapter (2017), the Longwell Instructor Award for Excellence in the College of Engineering (2018), LSU Alumni Association Faculty Excellence Award (2013), LSU Distinguished Faculty (2021), Worley Professor of Excellence (2022), and is routinely recognized by the graduating seniors as the most demanding Professor in the department.
