My major interests are in teaching and research activities centered broadly in Fluid-thermal area. I am an Assistant Professor of Mechanical Engineering at IIT Palakkad. I offer theory courses and few lab experiments to students across various semesters. My research involves understanding combustion and general fluid phenomena through laser diagnostic techniques. I have a keen interest in developing novel techniques for laser based measurements as well

Research

My research work is on studying combustion through simple experiments and laser diagnostic techniques. Building flame database for validation of combustion models is an important aspect of the research. Practical burners for gas turbine engine combustors are developed and studied using laser diagnostic and conventional techniques to gain insight into the operational challenges whilst controlling pollutant emissions.
