Areas of Research Interest
Manufacturing Techniques and properties of composites
Actively involved in the manufacturing techniques and characterization of composite materials since 2006. Process optimization and cure kinetics monitoring are the key areas along with the resultant 3D composites characterization techniques. Other research interests are renewable energy, manufacturing processes, maintenance and monitoring, Optimization of hybrid joints, materials and finite element modelling and nanocomposites.
