I enjoy teaching mechatronics, dynamics and control systems. I worked as a research assistant while completing my doctoral degree. I worked on chemical mechanical planarization, a necessary step in semi–conductor manufacturing. I worked on prediction of life of hip implants using fracture mechanics. I also worked on non–linear dynamics of thermo–mechanical aspects of machining.
I enjoy playing chess, reading, listening to music and programming. The lower the programming language, the more I enjoy it.
