Assistant Professor at Amrita University
Apr 1997 - Present
Currently pursuing my PhD in Supply Chain Management. I am interested in pursuing industry relevant projects and technical consultancy in the areas of Lean Management, Productivity improvement and Supply Chain Management. I have guided numerous projects - 4 projects in Implementation of Lean manufacturing for pump and automotive industries, modeling of a streamlined textile supply chain, design and fabrication of electrochemical and electro-discharge machines, Design and Fabrication of a Tele-operated Mobile Robot and a mobility robot for the blind, assembly line automation, plant layout, etc. I am teaching Enterprise Management, Tool Design, Non-conventional machining (special interest in Electrochemical micromachining), Statistical Methods in Engineering and Manufacturing Engineering. With a belief that intrinsic motivation can be cultivated in anyone with methodical training, I have counseled and trained many students with poor academic performance, lack of motivation, lack of communication skills and having personal problems into becoming better performers and empowered them to lead better lives.
