A FAMU-FSU College of Engineering professor Sastry Pamidi was recently chosen to serve on the board of the prestigious Cryogenic Society of America. His five-year term begins this month.
Pamidi is the chair of the department of electrical and computer engineering at the FAMU-FSU College of Engineering and the associate director for the Center for Advanced Power Systems.
"Being elected to the board of the Cryogenic Society of America is an excellent recognition of Dr. Pamidi's long-standing reputation in the field, " said Suvranu De, dean of the FAMU-FSU College of Engineering, “we are extremely proud of his accomplishments.”
In 2021, Pamidi was elected Fellow of the Cryogenic Society of America for his significant contributions to cryogenic engineering related to superconducting power applications. He leads a multidisciplinary research group at CAPS and collaborates with many research groups worldwide.
“Professor Pamidi has made substantial contributions in the area of cryogenics and has advanced our understanding in superconducting technologies that are far-reaching,” Roger McGinnis, CAPS director, said. “He takes great pride in mentoring our students, and our students greatly appreciate his kindness, mentorship and teaching.”
“As a member of the Cryogenic Society of America for many years, Pamidi’s appointment to the CSA board is a recognition by the many members and industry teams of the value he brings to the organization,” McGinnis explained.
The Cryogenic Society of America is a non-profit technical organization of individuals who want to develop and advance low-temperature processes and techniques. Researchers at CAPS are developing high-temperature superconducting devices by integrating cryogenic, superconducting, and high-voltage engineering technologies.
“Professor Pamidi’s leadership at Florida State University in this field is going to enable CAPS, the college and FSU to help develop liquid hydrogen as a new energy source—something that has become of significant interest at the national level,” McGinnis said.
