Institut de Combustion Aérothermique Réactivité et Environnement France

I am presently working as Professor at Department of Aeronautical Engineering, VelTech University, Chennai. I have completed Master of Engineering (Aeronautical), at Department of Aeronautical Engineering, Madras Institute of Technology, Anna University, and doctorate from Indian Institute of Technology, Madras, India, in the field of nano-particles production and characterisation and its application in aerospace propulsion. I was awarded for Sandwich Postdoc Fellowship from Science Technology and Service, Embassy of France, New Delhi, India. I have done the postdoc fellowship research at Institut de Combustion Aérothermique Réactivité et Environnement, Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique, France. I have involved in generating hydrogen using clean technologies relevant for on demand applications, avoiding storage costs and risks is of great importance for fuel cell applications for various uses and transport applications using both fuel cells or internal combustion engines and micro gas turbines for both propulsion and energy generation uses. I have started intensive research activities at ICARE on the energetics of metal combustion (Al and Mg) for space propulsion applications and for future Mars Sample Return Missions using the in-situ propellant production concept (in this case the use of Martian CO2 to burn Al and Mg present in the Martian soil). I have designed, fabricated and demonstrated the Pyro igniter and Pyro starter Development for Gas Turbine Engine Applications, the project sponsored by GTRE (Gas Turbine Research and Establishment), DRDO (Defence Research and Development Organisation), Govt of India (9.625 Lakhs). I have completed the project titled 'Development of Design Methodology for Optimizing Squeeze Film Damper (SFD) for Aero Gas Turbine Engine and Experimental Verification Studies” under scheme of GATET (Gas Turbine Enabling Technology Initiative), sponsored by ARDB (Aeronautical Research and Development Board), DRDO, Govt of India (1.88 Crore). I have also contributed as co-investigator for the project titled 'Enhancement of flame stabilization using porous media stabilizers for gas turbine engine applications”, sponsored by ARDB, DRDO, Govt of India (19.5 Lakhs). I am handling the project as co-investigator sponsored by DST-TSDP scheme (20.7 Lakhs). I worked as senior researcher at ICARE, France, for working the 'Optimizing gasification of high-ash content coals for electricity generation” (Optimash – France, Netherland, Turkey and India) an Indo-European collaborative project under seventh framework programme of European Union for 4 years. In addition to that, i am also working in the field of renewable energy technology; the pyrolysis, combustion and gasification studies of several carbonaceous materials, such as scrap tyres, biomass (Miscanthus, Olive waste, sewage sludge, etc.,) samples, petcoke, oil shale and oil sand sample characteristics to optimize its effective usage in system level configurations I have vast experience in renewable energy has showcased the abilities in publishing more than 20 peer reviewed journals internationally. I have visited several countries (France, Sweden, Netherland, Germany, Belgium, USA, Canada, China, Turkey) and presented 16 international conference papers and research meetings.
