Dr. Ravi K. Vadapalli joined IDSC after serving as Program Director for the Center for Agile and Adaptive Additive Manufacturing and Senior Director for IT Support at the University of North Texas (UNT) in Denton. Prior to UNT, Dr. Vadapalli was a Senior Research Scientist at the High-Performance Computing Center at Texas Tech University (TTU) in Lubbock. In those roles, he helped secure nearly $3 million dollars in external funding, more than $40 million in grant proposals, and more than $230 million in-kind grants for skilled workforce training.

One of Dr. Vadapalli’s priorities is advancing cancer care and research through machine learning (ML), artificial intelligence (AI), and powerful computer models. At TTU, he partnered with researchers at M.D. Anderson Cancer Center and Rice University to accelerate the development of patient treatment plans.

Dr. Vadapalli is also interested in applying advanced computing tools to develop sophisticated climate models involving ocean and atmospheric conditions. Dr. Vadapalli holds a Doctorate in Nuclear Physics from Andhra University in India, and a Master’s degree in Computational Engineering from Mississippi State. He and his wife have two sons.
