About Me:

My area of specialisation is Manufacturing Engineering. Major research interests are Automation Technology and Technology Management. Till date, I have successfully guided two PhD scholars and one MSc (Engg) by Research candidate and presently five research scholars are working for their doctoral thesis under my supervision. About 25 M.Tech students have successfully completed their dissertation under my supervision in the areas of automation, product development, process capability and materials technology. 

I am the Principal Investigator for the FIST project of DST. Earlier I have served as the Special Officer of VTU-Bosch Rexroth Centre for Automation, Mysore, from 2007 to 2008 and headed the department of Mechanical Engineering at NIE from 2013 to 2015. I have undergone two week training programme on “Hydraulics & Pneumatics” at Bosch Rexroth Training centre in Germany in 2007 and two week training workshop on “Technology Transfer” at Shanghai, China during 2009. I have presented research papers in the international conferences held at IISc, Bangalore; Univ. of Nottingham, UK; University of Scotland, Edinburgh, UK; Univ. of Berkeley, USA; and Athens Institute of Engineering Research, Athens, Greece. I am presently the Vice Principal of NIE
