Bio

I am a Professor in the School of Civil Engineering at Dr. Vishwanath Karad MIT World Peace University, Pune, formerly known as MIT Pune. I am a teacher by passion and structural design consultant by interest. I have teaching and structural design experience of about 18 years. Moreover, I pursued my doctoral degree from the Indian Institute of Technology (IIT), Bombay in 2016. My Ph.D. research work was in the field of Earthquake Resistant Design of Structures in general and Seismic Response of Steel Moment Resisting Frame installed with Passive Energy Dissipation Devices in particular. The installation of passive energy dissipation devices enhances the seismic performance of structures was one of my findings during my doctoral research study. Upon installation of energy dissipaters, along with enhanced seismic performance, the material can also be saved up to 30%. Masonry infill walls play a vital role by increasing lateral stiffness to cover up the high seismic demands, which is one of my other findings. I like to read, write and deliver talks on Earthquake Resistant Design of Structures, Structural Dynamics, RCC and Steel Design, and Classical Structural Analysis. One patent is recently published on the use of steel circular core in a buckling restrained brace (Passive Energy Dissipater). I have published two books and over 30 research papers and articles in reputed journals. With the research funding received from AICTE New Delhi, I have developed a structural dynamics laboratory that is equipped with a state of the art servo shake table in the school. Five research scholars are doing their doctoral studies and over 45 scholars have completed their master’s research work under my supervision. I am the recipient of most prestigious awards like Dr. APJ Abdul Kalam research and motivation prize -2019, IACC Innovative Faculty Award – 2019, Padmashree B.G. Shirke Vidyarthi Award -2018 for the research and development work in the fields of structural engineering. I am also completing various commitments with MIT WPU and other universities like Savitribai Phule Pune University, Shivaji University, and Mumbai University, etc. at various levels of work profile.
