He is currently the N. Waldo Harrison Professor of Engineering Science and Mechanics (ESM) at Virginia Tech where he will have served as Department Head of ESM for nine years from 2004 through 2013.

From the McMaster Daily News:  

The McMaster University Faculty of Engineering’s vision of creating global citizen scholars with a focus on sustainability fits perfectly with the goals of incoming dean Ishwar Puri.  “Engineering is a discipline that can change the world,” he said.  “If we focus on our core values such as inclusivity we can create change for a better society.  McMaster has a long history of leadership in these areas and I am anxious to begin working with individual faculty members and students to increase the impact of our educational and research programs.”
