Madhu Kodam, PhDSolids Processing Technology Leader Corteva Agriscience

Madhu Kodam is the Solids Processing Technology Leader in Corteva Agriscience, Indianapolis. At Corteva, Madhu has been providing technical expertise for both Manufacturing and R&D programs in various disciplines of solids processing including particle/powder characterization, bulk solids handling, drying, gas/solid separations, fluidization, conveying, etc. Prior to Corteva, Madhu worked at The Dow Chemical Company for 8 years and supported various businesses across Dow, solving a wide variety of problems related to particle technology, ranging from caking and flowability of bulk solids, to pneumatic conveying, fluidization, and developed two-phase models to better understand fine powder flow behavior.

Madhu received his Ph.D. in Mechanical Engineering from Purdue University under the guidance of Prof. Carl Wassgren, where he developed novel contact-detection algorithms for true pharmaceutical tablet shapes and different particle attrition mechanisms during tablet coating processes as part of his Ph.D. studies. He frequently lectures at the Kansas State University Bulk Solids Innovation Center and Purdue University on various topics of Particle Technology.
