My research interests are centered around the areas of concurrent design and manufacturing with applications towards Design and Manufacturing Process improvement, Bio Medical Engineering, Computer aided Design, Oil and Gas, and Industrial Automation. These are divided into following 5 research themes.

Sustainable Design:

Lifecycle based design; robustness in early design concept; robust design; virtual prototyping; design for X; design for developing world


Tolerance analysis and optimization; uncertainty management in manufacturing

Additive Manufacturing:

Variation management in FDM based manufacturing processes; tolerancing for additive manufacturing; design for bio printing; 3D scanning

Design Theory & Methodology:

Transdisciplinary design processes; cognitive aspects of Transdisciplinary design; automation through quantitative design process


Autonomous multi rotor platforms for payload deployment; model based design
