Research Interests

 

Terrestrial Impacts of Spaceweather

It involves study of effects of Spaceweather on technology systems. I’ve dedicated over 4 years in the study, apart from my coursework. The research involves the development of a model which can be used to shield/warn technology during harsh Spaceweather conditions. Two papers under this domain concern with satellite communications modelling and recently contributing towards the Solar Shield project by Dr. Antti Pullikenen, GSFC-NASA which aims to shield power grids from possible GIC effects to implement in India. 

 

Automated Mechanical Systems  

I also have extensively worked on embedded systems including design of various mechanical systems. One major project was carried out in TechnOArc Projects, a local startup; which involved prototyping of a humanoid robot.  Apart from these, an automobile project was developed for security forces, which was my undergraduate thesis work. Most of this research work has been done under the guidance of Dr. S. Bagde, YCCE and involved a development of FMS automated system in the laboratory.
