Working with me
I am always looking for exceptional graduate and undergraduate
students who have the potential to excel. A successful student in this area
must have a solid background in mathematics and engineering.
Good communication skills and any previous research experience are a plus, but not mandatory.
Following are the research projects I am currently interested in.
A. Additive manufacturing;
B. Design and analysis of biomedical devices and implants;
C. Application of nanotechnology in healthcare;
D. Development of biosenors for detection of heavy metals in drinking water;
E. Nanomaterials based solutions for water treatment
A. The B.Tech. project of Gajendra Singh Meena, Anuj Sharma and Brajesh Singh wins Jayesh Memorial Award'16. Congratulations to the team for their effort!
B. The B.Tech. project of Inderveer Singh, Shubham Singh and Philip Jose wins Jayesh Memorial Award'15, Shri Binay Kumar Sinha Memorial award and Proficiency Medal for the best
B.Tech. Project in the 48th convocation for designing a low cost above knee prosthetic limb. Congratulations to the team for their effort!
