Dr. Tiwari received his Ph.D. in Low Temperature Condensed Matter Physics from the Indian Institute of Technology, Kanpur in the year 2000. Within a week of submitting his dissertation, Dr. Tiwari started working on NASA’s He3-He4 superfluidity experiments near the tri-critical point (with Prof. Norbert Mulders) at their low-temperature project site in Delaware. Those experiments were performed in collaboration with Jet Propulsion Laboratory and important findings were documented in NASA's Document#D-21522. In 2001, Dr. Tiwari switched his field from Physics to Materials Science & Engineering and moved to North Carolina State University to join their prestigious NSF Center for Advanced Materials and Smart Structures (NSF-CAMSS) as a Research Scientist. There he worked with the Center Director Prof. Jagdish Narayan on pulsed laser processing of advanced functional materials. This project led to more than forty journal articles and one US patent. In 2005, Dr. Tiwari joined the University of Utah as a tenure-track Assistant Professor of Materials Science & Engineering. In 2010, he was promoted to the rank of Associate Professor with tenure. In 2014, Dr. Tiwari was appointed as the Director of the Spintronics IRG of the University of Utah's NSF-MRSEC. Dr. Tiwari has to date published more than 120 peer reviewed research articles (100+ in international journals) and holds 7 US patents. As per google scholar his papers have received more than 2850 citations and his h-index is 27 (as of October 2015). Dr. Tiwari has received several awards including NSF CAREER Award, IAAM medal and TMS Young leader award. Dr. Tiwari serves on the editorial board of Scientific Reports, a journal from the Nature Publishing Group and as the Chief Editor of the Journal of Energy Storage and Conversion.  Dr. Tiwari is married to Surabhi Pandey who is a Software Engineer in a Salt Lake City based multinational company. They have two children, Anya and Om.
