Dr. Jay S Gunasekera

Dr. Jay Gunasekera is an internationally recognized researcher in the area of metal forming and manufacturing. He has pioneered discoveries in the design of streamlined extrusion dies, forging and heat treatment problems, and ring rolling.

Dr. Gunasekera was the Mechanical Engineering Department Chair at Ohio University from 1991-2006. During his time as department chair, undergraduate and graduate enrollments increased significantly, two new laboratory courses for senior design and research were established, two-thirds of the current faculty were hired, and research funding increased exponentially to over two million dollars per year. Dr. Gunasekera has advised over 90 graduate students, many of who are now leaders in their respective fields. Additionally, he helped form the Center for Advanced Materials Processing (CAMP), and served as its first director.

Dr. Gunasekera was the American Editor of the Journal of Materials Processing Technology published by Elsevier. He has undertaken research and consulting projects for the United States Air Force, General Electric, Pratt & Whitney, General Motors, and a large number of forging companies.

Dr. Gunasekera has been published in over 150 technical publications and referenced in many journals and conferences. He was awarded the highest doctorate (D.Sc.) Degree by the University of London in 1991 for his contribution in research and publications in the field of manufacturing engineering. He was a Fellow of the City & Guilds of London, the highest honor conferred by that institution, and remains the only Sri Lankan to ever receive this award. He is a Fellow of SME & FRSA, past Fellow of IMechE, IProdE & IEE.

He is recognized in Who's Who in Engineering Education, Who's Who in the World, Who's Who of Emerging Leaders in America, Who's Who in American Education, The International Who's Who of Intellectuals, International Leaders in Achievement, The International Directory of Distinguished Leadership, Men of Achievement, and Who's Who of Engineering Leader's of America.
