Dilip Kondepudi

Dilip Kondepudi nsIn thermodynamics, Dilip Kumar Kondepudi (1952-) is an Indian-born American physical chemist noted for the 2008 textbook Introduction to Modern Thermodynamics, which is a follow-up to the 1998 Modern Thermodynamics co-written with Belgian chemist Ilya Prigogine, both publications being products of the Brussels school, particularly the affinity theories of Belgian thermodynamicist Théophile De Donder. Kondepudi seems to be the first to have used the term Gibbs energy flow, particularly in relation to biological systems.

Education
Kondepudi completed his BS in chemistry in 1971 at Madras University, his MS in physics in 1973 at the Indian Institute of Technology, Bombay, and his PhD in physics, thesis "On the Influence of External Fields on Non-Equilibrium Systems", under the supervision of Belgian chemist Ilya Prigogine, in 1979 at the University of Texas at Austin.
