Department of Mechanical Engineering
My primary objective is to share my knowledge in the simplest way with the learners, especially mechanical engineering students, so that students will acquire the ability to design the systems which fulfil the need of our environment and society. I have taught design courses for both under graduation and post graduation students with total teaching experience of 10 years. My research interests are in the field of composite materials, modeling and analysis of mechanical systems; and vibration studies in mechanical structures. However, I am also interested in thermal analysis in various mechanical applications.
