Subhash L. Shinde, associate director of the University of Notre Dame’s Center for Sustainable Energy (ND Energy), has been named to the National Academy of Inventors’ (NAI) 2017 Class of Fellows. The fellowship is considered “the highest professional accolade bestowed to academic inventors who have demonstrated a prolific spirit of innovation in creating or facilitating outstanding inventions that have made a tangible impact on quality of life, economic development, and welfare of society.”
In discussing this recognition, Shinde said, “I am deeply honored to be named among such a prestigious group of inventors, alongside university presidents, senior leaders of research universities, Nobel Laureates and more. I look forward to joining my fellow inductees at the NAI’s Seventh Annual Conference in April.”
Shinde holds more than 60 U.S. patents as well as 18 international patents, and he is an attributed author on multiple publications and an editor of three books from Springer International Publishing. In his current role, Shinde works to develop corporate relationships to support the faculty at Notre Dame in initiating global research programs and large-center research grants for ND Energy, a University research center whose mission is to build a better world by creating new energy technologies and systems and by educating individuals to help solve the most critical energy challenges facing our world today. Before joining the University, Shinde held leadership roles in IBM’s microelectronics and research divisions, as well as research staff and management positions at Sandia National Laboratories.
“Subhash is well-deserving of this recognition, as he is an esteemed researcher and inventor,” said Peter Burns, director of ND Energy and Henry J. Massman Professor of Civil & Environmental Engineering & Earth Sciences. “His combination of academic, government and industry experience is invaluable and we are honored to have him as a leader on our team.”
