Personal profile

Research Interests:

My research interests fall in the broad category of experimental and computational investigation of materials and manufacturing processes. These include to some extent, the experimental supervision and in great detail the formulating and application of computational frameworks and material constitutive models for metals, soft materials and their interfaces at different length scales. My interests in these models are broad, spanning a wide range of macro-, micro- and nano-scale phenomena. Main areas of my research in the recent past and present can be divided into two broad categories

1. Multiscale Materials characterization and modelling

2. Manufacturing process optimization using experimental and simulation techniques
