Following his Ph. D.. from the University of
Texas at Austin in 1973, Prof. Ananthakrishna
held post-doctoral positions at UT, Austin and
at IISc, Bangalore. He then joined the Indira
Gandhi Centre for Atomic Research at Kalpakkam
in 1975. Since 1990 he has been a member of
the faculty at MRC.
He has also been a visiting professor at University
of Brussels, Brussels and University of Metz,
France and a visiting Associate at the International
Centre for Theoretical Physics, Trieste, Italy,
1989-93. He has served on the editorial board
of Materials Science and Engineering from 1995
to 2004. He is a fellow of the Indian Academy
of Sciences, the Indian National Science
Academy and a fellow of the Asia Pacific Academy
of Materials. He is a recipient of the Materials
Research Society of India Medal for 1992 and
Annual Superconductivity and Materials Science
Award, MRSI , 2005.
