Dr. Sudha Joseph

New Materials & Components

Research Interests

Designing advanced materials for biomedical applications and sustainable hydrogen generation. Prediction of material properties by machine learning approaches.


Dr. Sudha Joseph has done her masters and PhD in Materials Engineering from the Indian Institute of Science (IISc), Bangalore. Later, she moved to Imperial College, London, UK for her postdoctoral research. She is specialized in processing, micromechanics and failure investigations of a wide range of advanced materials.

Her current research interests include developing TiO 2 -based nano-photocatalysts for sustainable hydrogen production, designing 3D printed metastable beta- Titanium alloys based synthetic bones for biomedical applications and designing materials by artificial intelligence. She collaboratively worked with various universities, University of Oxford and Manchester, Max-Planck-Institutfür Eisenforschung GmbH in Germany and industries Rolls-Royce (UK), Timet (UK), General Motors (USA), Aeronautical Development Agency (India).
