Dr. Sumith Yesudasan

Assistant Professor

Sam Houston State University


Born in India, back in 1983, I was fortunate to grow up in a small-town neighborhood with amazing friends around me. During my undergraduate years, I got so passionate of computer programming and created a few games, tools and engineering software. As the life moved on, I became a professional Mechanical Engineer earning a Masters from NIT Calicut and then working for General Electric and Delphi Automotive. My constant surge to excel in Engineering led me to pursue PhD in Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering.

Currently, I work as an Assistant Professor and blend-in my expertise in Machine Learning and molecular dynamics to develop coarse grain heat transfer models, development of liquid cooling devices for computers and multiscale simulations of blood clots.
