I am Professor at the School of Civil Engineering at.MITWPU and heading this school since its inception. Prior to this, I was Professor and Head of Department of Structural Engineering at MIT Pune.until June 2017. Earlier I did my doctoral research at College of Engineering Pune, Pune University, in the field of Bio Mechanics under the guidance of Dr. Satish Sathe and Dr. K.H.Sancheti.( 2003-2007) . I received my Bachelors from MIT Pune, Pune University in 1990. and Masters in Structural Engineering from Government College of Engineering Karad in 1994. I am involved in teaching since 1990 and teach various structural mechanics and design subjects at undergraduate and Postgraduate level. I was instrumental in setting up MIT CAD CAM CAE Design and Training center ( 2000-2008).I am the Ph.D. supervisor and Three students have been awarded doctoral degree till date. I am involved in funded research projects of an International level and done academic collaborations for my Institute and Department. My specific research interests lie in Bio-Mechanics, Precast Structure, Innovative Designs, and Construction Technology. I have worked on various administrative bodies at Pune University in the capacity of Senate Member, member Board of studies, member Faculty of Engineering.
