Career Graph:

I am currently working as an Assistant Professor in the Mechanical Cluster at UPES. I hold a PhD (2018) and an M.S. (2014) in Aerospace Structures from IIT Madras in Chennai, India, both under the supervision of Prof. Sivasambu Mahesh,. I completed a Bachelor degree in Aeronautical Engineering from The Aeronautical Society of India in 2011. After completing B. E., I worked for approximately one year as a trainee engineer at DRDO (CABS), Bengaluru, India. Prior to joining UPES, I spent six months as a post-doctoral fellow at IIT Madras.
