Graduated B Tech from NIT Rourkela in Ceramic Engineering and served TATA refractories Ltd for 4 years in the Research and Development on Ceramics and Refractories. Then, perused PhD from IIT Kharagpur in Material Science and Engineering and joined department of Ceramic Engineering, IIT (BHU) Varanasi in the year 2007. I have more than 21 years of experience including industry, academic and research. My research expertise includes Powder Processing of materials, Shape forming and Fabrication of ceramics and composite materials, Foams and Porous Materials, Construction Materials, Refractory Materials and Waste management.
