RESEARCH TOPICS AVAILABLE:
(i) PhD topics available for regular position candidates appearing in May 2020 - composite manufacturing and process models
(ii) MTech projects available now - i) Defects in manufactured composites, ii) Understanding and modelling of cure of composite systems, iii) Wear prediction of manufacturing processes, iv) Design of composite biomechanical systems. All projects are in collaboration with overseas universities.
(iii) Postdoc research topics available for fellowship proposals (such as NPDF) for intersted PhD students (who have completed their PhD). Candidates are expected to have publications in composite manufacturing in journals of repute.
With almost 5 years of post-PhD work experience in research, teaching and enterprise, I have developed skills in applying research propositions, leading project meetings, networking and resolving conflicts in multi-partner collaborations and inviting university-industry collaborations. Currently I am an Assistant Professor in Manufacturing Science and Engineering, specialized in composite materials and manufacturing, biomechanics and tribology.Working in top Australian (UNSW Sydney), top UK (Manchester, Nottingham and Leeds) and top Indian universities (IIT Kharagpur and JU) instilled within me a sense of passion toward innovative and applied scientific research. My PhD and postdocs in Mechanical Engineering have set a new paradigm of efficiently manufacturing and predicting the behaviour of multi-layered materials (COMPOSITES), and understanding the physics behind the fluid-solid interaction at different scales (TRIBOLOGY of Manufacturing Processes).Outside research, I have lectured MScs in the fields of numerical methods, and tribology to share the most up-to-date industry relevant teaching material and create an effective teaching environment. I am also supervising project students at masters and PhD levels in the areas of FEA, composites and lubrication science.
Please feel free to inbox me for any possible collaboration or opportunities.
