About Me:

I have been an Assistant Professor at the Department of Mechanical Engineering since August 2011 and the coordinator for the NIE CNC Training Centre since June 2012. The Centre has proven to be a thriving nucleus for student driven activities. Nearly 1000 students and industry personnel have been trained at the Centre. I am also the Coordinator for Training on Automation Technology at the Department of Mechanical Engineering, NIE.

I am the faculty advisor for the Formula Student Racing teams at NIE since June 2014. The track racing (Formula Bharat & SAE Supra) & off road (SAE Baja India) teams have won numerous accolades in the past few years. 

I am currently pursuing my PhD at the JSS Science & Technology University in the field of Tooling Applications of ABS using Additive Manufacturing. I am a member of the executive committee of the Additive Manufacturing Society of India.
