Dr. Koneru's research focus is in computational materials science. His research is aimed in converting waste heat energy to electricity thereby improving the overall thermal efficiency of devices. He developed a unique model to incorporate the combined contribution due to both charge and spin of an electron in heat energy conversion.applications. He uses Density Functional Theory employed in Quantum Espresso package to perform fundamental calculations; Non-Equilibrium Green's Function formalism to calculate charge transport; and spin transport theory to calculate the spin voltage generated in magnetic materials. 

Dr. Koneru's taught the following courses at UTPB:
Engineering Mechanics: Statics
Engineering Mechanics: Dynamics
Introduction to Thermodynamics
Introduction to Fluid Mechanics
Engineering Economics

He is a member of Materials Research Society. His other research interests include functional materials for catalysis.
