About Me:

My primary area of interest are in Processing of polymer matrix composites, and natural fiber reinforced composites. I completed my PhD from NIT, Tiruchirapalli. My PhD topic is processing and characterization of camphor soot embedded natural fiber reinforced Nylon composites. I have worked on manufacturing of thermoplastic composites and thermoset composites. I have hands on experience on compression moulding process, twin-screw extruder, injection moulding machine. I have handled non-traditional machining, Mechanical engineering sciences, metrology and measurements, Manufacturing Process for UG students.
