About the author (2012)

J. P. Singh is Associate Professor at the graduate program in Communication, Culture and Technology at Georgetown University. His book publications include Leapfrogging Development? The Political Economy of Telecommunications Restructuring (1999) and Information Technologies and Global Politics (co-edited with James N. Rosenau, 2002). He has also authored over three-dozen scholarly articles. He has been a visiting scholar at the World Trade Organization in Geneva and at the New America Foundation in Washington, DC. He was Editor of the Wiley-Blackwell journal Review of Policy Research: The Politics and Policy of Science and Technology, from 2006 09.

Dr. Narottam Bansal is a Senior Research Scientist in the Ceramics Branch, Materials and Structures Division, NASA Glenn Research Center, Cleveland, OH. After receiving his Ph. D. in 1973, he held post-doctoral research assignments in Canada and USA. He has carried out research in a number of areas: solid oxide fuel cells, thermal and environmental barrier coatings, fiber-reinforced ceramic matrix composites for high-temperature structural applications in turbine engines, high-temperature superconductors, sol-gel and combustion processing, refractory glass-ceramics, kinetics of phase transformations, IR-transmitting materials, electroanalytical techniques, ionic diffusion in melts. He has been team leader of a number of technical teams at NASA.

Dr. Bansal is a Fellow of the American Ceramic Society. He is recipient of NASAa (TM)s Medal for Exceptional Scientific Achievements, R & D 100 Award, Turning Goals into reality Award, and Hind Rattan Award. He has also received numerous Innovative Technology Development Awards and Tech Brief Awards from NASA and his biography has been included in more than 30 Whoa (TM)s Who. So far, he has organized 31 International Symposia and edited 23 Conference proceedings. He is author/co-author of 4 books, 6 invited book chapters, 3 review articles, 8 NASA Tech Briefs, and 215 research papers. He has been awarded seven U.S. Patents, so far. Dr. Bansal has been a member of the Technical Committees of International Commission on Glass and International Union of Pure & Applied Chemistry. He has also served on the advisory boards of a number of international conferences.

Waltraud M. Kriven is Professor of Materials Science and Engineering at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. Professor Kriven received her Ph.D. in 1976 in Solid State Chemistry from the University of Adelaide in South Australia and her B.Sc. (Honors) and Baccalaureate degrees in Physical Chemistry, Inorganic Chemistry, and Biochemistry from the same institute. She is an internationally recognized expert in the areas of phase transformations in inorganic compounds and their applications in structural ceramic composites. She has authored or co-authored over 240 research publications, and fourteen books to date.
