About Me:

My research interests are primarily based on various manufacturing processes with an emphasis on materials science and engineering. I have extensively worked on developing Magnesium and Aluminium based lightweight alloys and composites through liquid and powder metallurgy routes primarily targeting the automobile and aerospace industries. I have pursued my PhD in developing ultra-light weight alloys for the aerospace industry which was generously sponsored by India’s public research firm aeronautical research and development board (AR&DB). Further, I have extensively worked in various metal forming and severe plastic deformation processes. I possess a commanding knowledge of mechanical behaviour and the structure-property correlation of materials.During my stint at NIT Trichy as a research associate, I developed a Magnesium melting furnace to develop the ultra-lightweight alloy. Further, I have research experience in IISc Bangalore as a visiting scholar to conduct bulk texture and hot compression-related studies.I have worked as a lecturer at St.Peter’s University, Chennai and as an associate professor at DVR and Dr.HS MIC College of Technology, Vijayawada.
