Assistant Professor
Department of Mechanical Engineering
IIT Kanpur

The Machine Tool Dynamics Lab at the IIT Kanpur conducts research in the areas of machine tools, cutting tools, machining dynamics, dynamic substructuring, high-performance machining, and control of machine tool vibrations.

Our research is a combination of theoretical and experimental methods, and is informed by the challenges faced by the manufacturing enterprise. We 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.

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

The lab is headed by Dr. Mohit Law, who received his Ph.D. from the University of British Columbia, Canada, his MSc. from the Michigan Technological University, U.S.A., and his B.E. from Pune University, India. Dr. Law did his post-doctoral work at the Fraunhofer IWU in Germany. Dr. Law has previously worked as a machine tool designer.
