Devi K. Kalla, Ph.D., is currently employed at Metropolitan State University of Denver on a full time basis as a Tenure Track Faculty member with a position title of Professor of Mechanical Engineering Technology in the Department of Engineering Technology. Kalla has made substantial contributions to the hybrid and modern field of sustainable manufacturing science and engineering technology. His work has focused specifically in the areas of developing multiple regression analysis (MR) and committee neural network approximation (CN) models for predicting straight and oblique geometric cutting forces in milling operations using carbon fiber-reinforced polymer (CFRP) composites in the production process, establishing life-cycle databases to advance sustainable manufacturing practices in wind energy systems, and developing a framework to construct energy profiles and characterize the energy consumption involved in modern machining processes to support low carbon manufacturing.
Moreover, Kalla has a documented record of authorship in the field of endeavor. As evidence of his research success, Kalla’s work has resulted in at least 2 first-authored book chapters, 13 presentations, and 28 peer-reviewed scholarly publications, 16 of which are first-authored articles, appearing in leading international journals and international conference proceedings – an extremely productive and exemplary record compared to that of his peers in the mutual field of research.
