I am an assiatant professor in the Department of Civil Engineering, Birla Institute of Technology and Science, Pilani (BITS Pilani), Pilani Campus.
My primary focus is to develop reliable computational algorithms and, based on them, analyze strength and toughness of soft composites gaining
new insights into their mechanical behavior and design.
I was a postdoctoral fellow in the Faculty of Civil and Environmental Engineering, Technion - Israel Institute of Technology, Haifa, Israel. I worked under the guidance of Prof Konstantin Volokh to develop reliable computational algorithms and, based on them, analyze strength and toughness of soft composites gaining new insights into their mechanical behaviors and designs. Prior to that, I was a postdoctoral research associate in the Department of Biomedical Engineering and Mechanics, Virginia Tech., USA. I worked under the guidance of Prof. Romesh C Batra with an aim to model and understand the behaviours of ceramic composite armours under the high-velocity impacts. Before that, I was also a senior researcher in ESS Engineering Software Steyr GmbH, Steyr, Austria. I developed a Graphics Processing Unit (GPU) accelerated Smoothed Particle Hydrodynamics (SPH) solver to simulate the deformation of solids and geomaterials.
I was a Ph.D student in the Department of Civil Engineering, Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Kharagpur, India under the supervision of Prof. Amit Shaw.
I graduated with a Bachelor of Civil Engineering degree from Jadavpur University, Kolkata in 2011. Subsequently, I joined Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Kharagpur and got my Master of Technology degree in Structural Engineering in 2013. I joined IIT Kharagpur for my doctoral work in 2013. The highlights of my Ph.D. research work include
