About Me: My primary research interests are in Distribution automation ,Smart grid with a Power electronics control and Power quality problems. However, I am also quite interested in Electric vehicle integration to grid with battery storage application. My doctoral and Masters students tend to work in these areas. Other than my own research and student supervision, I am the PG -Power System programme coordinator, Head of Centre of Excellence - Centre of Energy Management and Testing of Electrical Apparatus (CEMATEA) in Electrical and Engineering department and actively involved in Industrial consultancy and Testing. I am working with the VGST KFIST- L1 sanctioned Research project  titled ”Establishment of Real time monitoring system R&D Facility for efficient operation of Campus power distribution network” with research fund Rs.20 Lakhs. I am reviewer of International Journal paper Electrical systems and components, Taylor and Francis group. I am the member of Internal Quality Assurance Cell (IQAC) Committee at institute level.
