About

I have done my Bachelor's degree in Mechanical engineering from Rajiv Gandhi Institute of Technology and now I am working in a company who design & manufacturer Heat exchangers for overseas automobile industries. They also design and manufacture Air handling units(AHU) to purify the air of refineries and waste treatment plants. My role in this company is to Design, analyze and develop the product.

I have experience in the following software: Solidworks, Ansys, AutoCAD and Autodesk Inventor. Related to SolidWorks apart from solid modeling, I have experience in surface modeling which I learned and used in my academic projects. In my final year project, I have modeled the Renault duster car in SolidWorks and have carried out the CFD analysis of the flow around it in Ansys Fluent. Apart from my academic projects, I have also participated in Boeing aeromodelling competition and SAE Aerodesign west 2014 competition.
