Rizwan completed M. Tech. in Materials Engineering from Visvesvaraya National Institute of Technology (VNIT) Nagpur (2019) before joining Ph. D. program at IIT Gandhinagar. He worked on the nitriding and corrosion behavior of aluminum alloys in my master’s thesis. His research area focused on welding of high entropy alloy using friction stir process and corrosion behavior of surface composites. Furthermore, he is interested in the simulation of the friction stir welding process and corrosion of high entropy alloy and surface composites.
