Biography

Recently he completed his 5-year Institute Research Fellowship term at Indian Institute of Technology-Delhi from July, 2010 to June, 2015. He joined SOET as Assistant Professor. While pursuing his research at IIT Delhi, he was actively involved in mentoring undergraduate and postgraduate students for several research projects. He also served as Teaching Assistant of Mechanical Engineering Department, IIT Delhi for about a dozen of courses in the field of thermal engineering.

He published several research papers in reputed national and international journals during his academic and research career. He qualified GATE 2006 and 2007 in mechanical discipline and received MHRD Scholarship for Masters and PhD research work. 

In his research work, he developed new concept for supersonic ejector design which removes the thermodynamic shock inside the ejector and improve the performance of conventional ejector.
