About Me:

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. looking at the experience  I was given an opportunity by Visvesvaraya Technological University(VTU) to undergo training in automation technology at Germany and later worked as Special officer for 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 of this experience from 2011 I am working as professor in NIE and Program Coordinator for Industrial automation and robotics also developed centre for robotics and controls and centre for automation 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 2500 students across vtu colleges and trained more than 400 faculties from different states, for my contribution to this field VTU has honoured in the year-2019
