Suresh Garimella, Ph.D., president of the University of Vermont
(AUGUST 4, 2023) Suresh Garimella, Ph.D., president of the University of Vermont, has achieved an H-index of 100 — meaning he has at least 100 papers cited a minimum of 100 times each, New India Abroad reports. Only 7,000 researchers across the globe have achieved this significant research milestone.
President Garimella came to UVM in July 2019 after 20 years at Purdue University, where he was Goodson Distinguished Professor of Mechanical Engineering and executive vice president for research and partnerships.
“Nothing is more satisfying than to know that your work is being widely followed and is assisting in the development of new technologies and deeper understanding of physical phenomena,” said Garimella. He still relishes the opportunity to conduct research. “I have always considered myself a faculty member first and an administrator second,” he said. “I continue to supervise a few Ph.D. students, meeting with them regularly in Zoom calls and occasionally in person, and I must say it is among the most enjoyable and refreshing of my activities. Each paper we work on and each patent that is issued for our discoveries continues to bring a thrill.”
