About Me

Creative Doer | Researcher | Innovator | Engineer

‘Energy’ exists in thoughts, memories, dreams and plays a significant role in every single life, be it smallest species amoeba proteus to six sensed homo sapiens.

I pursued my bachelors degree in Mechanical Engineering and turned into a computer programmer by gaining professional experience in C, Java and DBMS from an eminent IT firm. However the curiosity in investigating energy kindled my passion to obtain master degree in my academic backdrop as ENERGY ENGINEER.

During my master studies I firmly believed I could make some difference and enable with Engine enhancement, Few events cleared my sense of awareness and thoughts to pursue my dreams about enhancing Internal Combustion engine (ICE). I became a voracious reader, designer, developer and researcher with an objective to change the current Automotive industry by improving the Engine power and lower the emission associated with it. In this motive the fabrication of Novel engine head and associated components of the engine system has been designed and developed to implement in a real world, with the scope for a better performance in future internal combustion engine, for that I explored from Ingot to end product and also gained expertised in Electronics by coupling Engine-Microcontroller-Java for an Engine Telemetry, to analyse the Engine data for test purpose. In addition to that I have a granted patent in Renewable application.

I am interested and expertised in Ideation, Mathematical Modelling and Prototyping. My goal is to turn all the creative mathematical models to ‘Scale up’ in the real world applicable end product, offer my customers high reliability, short wait periods and competitive costs for all regions and classes of people. In this motive I am currently functioning as an R&D Engineer and a partner in a firm. As a part of a vision, a mathematical model has been developed to estimate the engine configuration based on the power requirement.
