My primary research interest is new material, automation and control .Over 25 years of experience out of which 10 years in industries and remaining in academia as a result of industry exposure in projects management Visvesvaraya Technological University shortlisted my name for an automation training in germany in the year 2004 and later worked as Special officer for university (VTU) during 2006-2011 to develop a centre of excellence in automation technology with the collaboration of Bosch Rexroth, this assignment has given me a lot of strength to solve technical problems in the field of automation as result got an opportunity to become resource person for many FPD & Corporate Programs which includes  faculties from different state & industry employees .Apart from this  provided many expert sessions to NITs & IITs. Presently working as professor in NIE with additional responsibilities such as  Program Coordinator for Industrial automation and robotics & dean Industrial Relations. also responsible for executions of  centre for robotics and controls under KCTU Govt of Karnataka and centre for Automation Technology- Department of Science & Technology to support research scholars in the area of sensor materials, material coating, automation, robotics and IoT. During the period from 2006 to till date conducted trainings to more than 3500 students across vtu colleges and trained more than 600 faculties from different states and 500 corporate employees for my contribution to this field VTU has honoured in the year-2019 & in 2020 acquired first patent on VR For Remote laboratory and in 2021 received distinguished professor award
