Dr. Krishna P.C. Madhavan is an Assistant Professor in the School of Engineering Education at Purdue University. Prior to his arrival at Purdue, he was an Assistant Professor with a joint appointment in the School of Computing and the Department of Engineering and Science Education at Clemson University. Dr. Madhavan also served as a Research Scientist at the Rosen Center for Advanced Computing, Information Technology at Purdue University where he led the education and the educational technology effort for the NSF-funded Network for Computational Nanotechnology (NCN). Dr. Madhavan continues to work actively on the NCN Education Team. He specializes in the development, deployment, and assessment of advanced cyberinfrastructure tools in day-to-day engineering and science curricula. One of the key aspects of his work focuses on how semantic grid-based technologies and tools can co-exist with students’ lifestyles, learning patterns, and technology choices. Dr. Madhavan was the Chair of the IEEE/ACM Supercomputing Education Program 2006 and was the curriculum director for the Supercomputing Education Program 2005. In January 2008, he was awarded the NSF CAREER award for work on transforming engineering education through learner-centric, adaptive cyber-tools and cyber-environments.
