Engineering
Mechanical and Manufacturing Engineering

I am currently working with ARC Training Centre for Automated Manufacture of Advanced Composites (AMAC) at UNSW Sydney. I obtained my PhD in Mechanics from Mines ParisTech (Ecole des Mines de Paris) in 2020, and Master and Bachelor degrees in Mechanical Engineering from IIT Kanpur in 2015. My research interests lie in exploring the mechanical attributes of fibre reinforced composite materials with an objective of industrial applications in the marine, aerospace, and automotive sectors by an integrated data-driven approach to design, analysis, and manufacturing.
