Kumar, an associate professor in Woodruff School, joined Georgia Tech in 2009 after working at IBM Corporation for a year. He is being recognized for his research on investigation of energy transport mechanism across the solid-solid and solid-liquid interfaces relevant to micro- and nano-electronic devices and thermal management systems, and electro-thermal transport in carbon nanotube networks based thin-film transistors relevant to flexible electronics. Kumar is author or co-author of over 100 journal or conference publications, and recipient of 2005 Purdue Research Foundation Fellowship, 2012 Summer Faculty Fellow from Air Force Research Lab, 2014 Sigma Xi Young Faculty Award, 2014 DARPA Young Faculty Award, and 2017 Woodruff Faculty Fellow.
