Siva Pilli, PhD
Siva Pilli, PhD, is a Senior Scientist/Engineer at Pacific Northwest National Laboratory, a US Department of Energy Laboratory located in Richland, WA. Siva earned is PhD in Mechanical Engineering from Washington State University. His research interests are in the areas of advanced materials and energy systems in general, and mechanics, modeling and applications to manufacturing and industrial processes in particular. He is a principal investigator/technical lead/key technical contributor to a wide range of US Department of Energy (DOE) and other industrial projects. In 2011, he won an R&D 100 Award (widely recognized as the "Oscars of Innovation") for co-developing a high production manufacturing process which improves the life of components by an average of five times while reducing the long-term cost per part. Siva volunteers at technical societies like American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME) and NSPE on issues relating to science, technology and public education.
Siva is currently pursuing a Master's degree in Business Administration at the University of Washington's Foster School of Business. He anticipates that this degree will provide him the opportunities/expertise to bring the best practices of high-tech manufacturing to all corners of the world. He believes that this will help develop a sustainable world without compromising the ability of our future generational resource needs.
