Sneha Prabha Narra received her B.E. in civil engineering in 2012 from Osmania University, M.S. in computational mechanics in 2013, M.S. in mechanical engineering in 2015, and Ph.D. in mechanical engineering in 2017 from Carnegie Mellon University. She then completed her postdoctoral training at the NextManufacturing Center at Carnegie Mellon University. She subsequently joined the mechanical engineering department at Worcester Polytechnic Institute (WPI) as an assistant professor in Fall 2018. She spent three years at WPI prior to joining the CMU Mechanical Engineering Department in July 2021.
She is currently serving as the Associate Editor of the Additive Manufacturing journal and plays an active role in organizing AM symposia and workshops through the TMS Additive Manufacturing bridge committee.
