conduct research in the areas of machine tools, machining dynamics,
dynamic substructuring, high-performance machining and control of
machine tool vibrations.
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
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
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. If you would like to learn more about my work, and would like to collaborate, please feel free to contact me.
For students: MTech, MS and PhD positions available. Please
