After completing B.Tech from College of Engineering, Pune with a CGPA of 7.69 in the year 2014, I bagged an Institute medal with a CGPA of 9.62 in the year 2016 and graduated with a Master’s degree in Geotechnical Engineering from National Institute of Technology, Rourkela. I joined MIT College of Engineering in 2016 as an Assitant Professor. I am a competent geotechnical engineer skilled in various analytical techniques used for design and simulation of soil retaining structures. Persistently, I have enhanced knowledge on the implementation and construction of assorted geotechnical aspects by teaching and learning process. While performing a usage assay of a large-scale green roof model for sustainable habitat, I have also worked on geocell applications in various civil projects. I have studied and developed an anaerobic biogas digester model. I am well versed in numerical tools; particularly PLAXIS, LimitState: GEO, MATLAB, and AutoCAD for academic and industrial projects.
