I am a research scholar in the Advanced Materials Processing Research Group at IIT Gandhinagar working in the field of surface composites fabrication using friction stir processing. The major focus is on the electrochemical and mechanical behavior of Aluminium matrix surface composites. Tribological analysis of metal matrix composite material is also explored. Other major fields of interest are liquid metal stir casting, centrifugal casting and functionally graded materials (FGM).
