Dr. Reddy is a Distinguished Professor, Regents' Professor and inaugural holder of the Oscar S. Wyatt Endowed Chair in Mechanical Engineering at Texas A&M University, College Station, Texas. Dr. Reddy earned a Ph.D. in Engineering Mechanics in 1974. He worked as a Post-Doctoral Fellow at the University of Texas at Austin, Research Scientist for Lockheed Missiles and Space Company during l974-75, and taught at the University of Oklahoma from 1975 to 1980, Virginia Polytechnic Institute & State University from 1980 to 1992, and Texas A&M University from 1992 till now.

Dr. Reddy is the author of nearly 400 journal papers and 16 text books on energy principles, variational methods, plates and shells, composite materials, and the finite element method and its applications to problems in solid and structural mechanics, composite materials, computational fluid dynamics, numerical heat transfer, and applied mathematics, and modeling of biological cells and nanosystems.

Dr. Reddy has delivered over 100 plenary, keynote lectures, or general invited lectures at international conferences and institutions, taught numerous short courses on finite elements and composite materials, and advised 20 postdoctoral fellows, 51 Ph.D. students, and 40 M.S. students, to date. He is selected as the Honorary Member, American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME), 2011. Dr. Reddy received an honorary degree (Honoris Causa) from the Technical University of Lisbon, Portugal in 2009 and Odlar Yurdu University, Baku, Azerbaijan in 2011.

Dr. Reddy is also a member of the International Association of Computational Mechanics (IACM), former co-editor of its bulletin, a founding member and former president of the U.S. Association of Computational Mechanics (USACM). As a result of his extensive publications of archival journal papers and books in wide range of topics in applied sciences and engineering, Dr. Reddy is one of the selective researchers in engineering around world who is recognized by ISI Highly Cited Researchers with over 10,000 citations with H-indexof over 49.
