About Me:

My area of interest is automotive safety. I have done my research on the different gas generants which can be used in automobile airbags. I have published these works in reputed international journals. I have also a patent granted to my name and yet another patent is at the verge of getting granted. I have also hands on experience on thermal analysis equipment like Differential Scanning Calorimetry and Thermogravimetric analyser.

I have worked as an Assistant Professor and taught subjects at both UG and PG levels in colleges namely, Sarabhai Institute of Science and Tech, Trivandrum, College of Engineering, Trivandrum, Sree Buddha College of Engineering, Alappuzha and NIT- Pondicherry
  • B.Tech (SIST (CUSAT), Trivandrum)
  • M. Tech (Saintgits College of Engineering - Kottayam, Machine Design)
  • Ph.D. (NIT-Trichy, Automotive Safety)
