About Me:

My primary research interest is in the field of foundation engineering. I am actively involved in consultancy activities, particularly in the field of geotechnical engineering. I had been a research associate for a period of 8 months at IISc, after my post-graduation. I have delivered technical talks at Administrative Training Institute, Forest Staff Training Institute and L&T, CTA Mysuru. I have also been a reviewer for two international journals and few international conferences. At the departmental level I was an NBA and NAAC co-ordinator in 2020.
