About Me:

My primary research interests are control systems, process control and neural networks. During my Ph.D. in National Institute of Technology Calicut, my research focus was in process dynamics & control systems. One of my research publication was honoured with the best paper award from Christ deemed to be University Bangalore. First rank for the academic excellence during M.Tech course is another noticeable honour.
