Suresh G. Advani is George W. Laird Professor of Mechanical Engineering and Associate Director, Center for Composite Materials at the University of Delaware. He received his Ph. D from University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign in 1987. His research interests are in rheology; fluid mechanics and heat transfer as applied to composite processing and alternate energy sources such as fuel cells and hydrogen storage. Advani has published over 350 journal papers and delivered over 200 invited lectures. He is the lead author of a text on Process Modeling in Composite Manufacturing Processes. Professor Advani is a Fellow of American Society of Mechanical Engineers and is the North American Editor for the journal Composites Part A: Applied Science and Manufacturing. Professor Advani received the Outstanding Researcher Award for 2015 from American Society of Composites and the Educator of the Year award from Society of Plastic Engineers. Professor Advani is also the co-creator of Liquid Mold Filling Software called LIMS which is used by many industries and academic institutions to advance the manufacturing science of composites. Professor Advani was selected to chair  the 24th International Conference on Composite Materials in 2023.
