About Me:

My primary research interests are in Structural Dynamics, Fatigue & Reliability of Bridges. I am involved in several major research and consultancy works at Department of Civil Engineering.  Some of the academic responsibilities such as Head of the Department, Dean (Academics), IQAC Head, and Principal were successfully completed at NIE. I am member in several academic committees in different Engineering Colleges such as BoE, BoS, Academic council member, and so on. I am recognised as research supervisor in VTU and AICTE. I am guiding four doctoral students under VTU University
