Welcome to my homepage.

I conduct research in the areas of machine tools, machining dynamics, dynamic substructuring, high-performance machining and control of machine tool vibrations.

I received my Ph.D. from the University of British Columbia, Canada, my MSc. from the Michigan Technological University, U.S.A., and my B.E. from Pune University, India. I did my post-doctoral work at the Fraunhofer IWU in Germany, and I have also worked in India as a machine tool designer for a few years after my B.E.

My work is a combination of theoretical and experimental methods, and is informed by the challenges faced by the manufacturing enterprise. I take great efforts to identify and work on use-inspired fundamental research questions and endeavor to yield solutions that are technically elegant and practically useful.

My research interests center on applying principles of dynamics to a wide range of engineering problems in the design and manufacturing of products and processes with emphasis on developing solutions for the machine tool, cutting tool, aerospace, automotive and die and mold industries. 

I believe that the push from advances made in fundamental use-inspired research that I undertake will help meet the pull from industry, thus allowing me to work at the intersection of academia and industry.
