Dr. Malladi earned his PhD (Mechanisms) at Oklahoma State University, USA in 1979, MTech (Machine Design) at Indian Institute of Technology (IIT), Madras in 1969, and BE (Mechanical) at Osmania University, India in 1965. He was on the faculty of Applied Mechanics Department, IIT Madras from 1968 till 1973 when he left for US. He received a Republic Day Award for “Import Substitution” by Government of India in 1974 for developing a hydraulic vibration machine at IIT Madras, for Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO), Tumba. In US he worked for the R&D departments of Computer, ATM and Railway Industry. He then resumed teaching at several US academic institutions. He spent two summers at NASA Kennedy Space Center as a research fellow. He received awards for academic, teaching and research excellence. His teaching experience ranges from KG to PG.
After his return to India, Dr. Malladi taught his favorite subject “Engineering Mechanics” at a few engineering institutions and found a need to 1. simplify the subject 2. create a new genre of class books to facilitate active reading and learning and 3. reform academic assessment for the sure success of every student to achieve “Equality”, that is “Equal High Quality” in their chosen fields of education.
The results of his efforts are 1. the following “landmark” paper 2. a class-book titled “Essential Engineering Mechanics with Simplified Integrated Methods of Solution (EEM with SIMS) and 3. material for software development for Improved Assessment Score (IAS), so that even an initially failing student achieves grade A, irrespective of the tier of school one attends.
Dr. Malladi has a simple and practical vision for future Unified Education with Diversity for the world, to develop the four quadrants of each child' brain in four languages and four subjects, namely Math, Management, Design and Technology with their applications. For example application of the study of Geometry of atoms results in Physics or Chemistry. Application of Design will result in Art or Engineering.
Dr. Malladi is willing to offer free workshops and short courses world wide in his Essential Engineering Mechanics, and free consultation on his Simplified Secular Education and Meditation, provided his “single” travel, lodging and alcohol-free pure vegetarian food expenses are met.
Dr. Malladi is a naturalized citizen of USA, and holds Overseas Citizen of India (OCI) Registration. He has US Federal Health Insurance valid anywhere. However he did not use his insurance for decades.
Dr. Malladi lives happily at his birth-place Raja-mahendra-varam, an East Godavary river-town, in the State of Andhra Pradesh, India, with his India born and educated daughter-in-law and US born and Cornell educated son. They both help him in Malladi Academy Activities.
