Began at Tech in Fall 2007 as an Associate Professor with tenure. Prior, he was a tenured Associate Professor (2006-2007) and an Assistant Professor (2000-2006) of Mechanical Engineering at the University of Michigan Ann Arbor.

Professor Das directs the Direct Digital Manufacturing Laboratory and Research Group at Georgia Tech. His research interests encompass a broad variety of interdisciplinary topics under the overall framework of advanced design, prototyping, direct digital manufacturing, and materials processing particularly to address emerging research issues in life sciences, propulsion, and energy. His ultimate objectives are to investigate the science and design of innovative processing techniques for advanced materials and to invent new manufacturing methods for fabricating devices with unprecedented functionality that can yield dramatic improvements in performance, properties and costs. His research has been funded by DARPA, NSF, NIH, NRL, ONR, and Rolls-Royce.
