Area of Research: Electronics materials like dielectrics, composite, multiferroics, ceramics, advance ceramics, nanocomposites, nanotechnology & engineering, optical properties and magnetic based materials etc are of major interest. Moreover, I am also working on Waste recycling and reutilization, refractory based structural high temperature materials, mechanical properties of materials, Composites, Geopolymers and others related project.

I have future plan to initiate work on Wear and Tribology, Heat Transfer based research topics, Concrete based materials.

Possible Academic Support for Mechanical Engg Dept and other Engg Interdisciplanary Schools at University Level:


With background on Mechanical Engineer I am highly compatible with following subjects like Fluid Mechanics, Energy Engg, (Solar Technology also) Manufacturing and Advance Manufacturing Processes (Casting Welding and Forming and others), Principal of Management for Engineers, Heat Transfer, Power Plant Engineering, Design and Strength of Materials, Internal Combustion Engines, Basics of Automobile, Design Engineering, Theory of Machines and Advanced Engineering Thermodynamics. Even comfortable to take subjects like Cement & Concrete Engg, Cement based composites, Solid Mechanics, Engineering Materials, Fluid Mechanics & Hydraulics for Civil Engineering students.


I am highly compatible to take classes on Subjects like Engineering Materials, Mechanical Metallurgy, Composites and Nanocomposites, Nanotechnology, Electronic Materials, Synthesis of Materials and Processings, Advance Ceramics, Characterization Techniques, Mechanical Properties of Materials for Interdisciplinary Schools and Nanotechnology. In the field of Ceramics and Glass my experience is also involved with teachings on Physical Ceramics, Glass Science, Glass technology, Refractory, Whitewares, Advance Ceramics and others.

As a Metallurgist, (Masters on Industrial Metallurgy) I am compatible with subjects like Mechanical Metallurgy, Iron & Steel Making, Physical Metallurgy, Corrosion of Materials, Material Science, Powder Metallurgy, Welding & Casting, Metallurgical Thermodynamics, Heat treatment of Metals.

Strength and Highlights

Being a double Graduate on Ceramic Engg and Mechanical Engg and master in Industrial Metallurgy, thus consider myself as a good competent personal  covering  Subject Areas on Materials and Design Engineering.
