About Me:

I am working in NIE from 2004 to till date. My research interest is in the area of power system which includes distribution system, renewable energy and smart grid. Currently working on a project titled “Digital Protection Algorithms for Renewable Integrated Grid”, Sponsored by VGST, and Govt. of Karnataka”. At present guiding 2 full time PhD scholars (AICTE – NDF Scheme) in the area of Energy Management System.  I have guided many UG and PG Projects. . I was a member of various committees at both department and institute level. I frequently organize course related workshops that are ‘hands on’ and relevant to industries. Currently working as Associate Professor and HoD of Electrical and Electronics Engineering Department. I am also a part of TEQIP-III implementation team as Nodal Officer (Procurement).
