Instructor

CIVIL ENGINEER / STRUCTURAL ENGINEER / ACADEMICIAN

I have completed my under graduation in civil engineering from NMAM Institute of technology. My post graduation is from Manipal Institute of technology in Structural Engineering. I am working as assistant professor in the field of academics from past two years in prestigious engineering institution. I have attended the many national and international conferences. I have also published my research work in may reputed national and international publications. Also involved in structural design consultancy from last three years.
