Loughborough University, Department of Materials.
I have always believed, If we can build better technology to survive on Moon or Mars, we can use such technologies to protect life on earth. I realized the values and importance of conservation of life on earth and wish to actively participate in transforming life, not just by the thoughts but by actions like, promoting space education and creating awareness in our society. In my assessment, Space is another frontier to explore and develop technology to survive under extreme environments which will also be beneficial to humankind.
I witnessed the benefits of interdisciplinary and intercultural exchange while traveling to different countries during my career. I realized the importance of Space for humankind. I believe, we have still not reached to the people who are not aware of the importance of Space technology and its advantages in our day to day life.
My interest has always been to contribute for future space exploration and develop advanced technology through scientific research and implementing idea with an interdisciplinary approach. The areas of my overall research goals are always to tackle and execute scientific and technical assessment of a particular idea or concept.
Currently I am pursuing PhD on Additive Manufacturing of Metamaterial Structures (SYMETA) at the Loughborough University, UK. After graduating in Physics, I decided to further pursue Masters in Space Studies (MSS) at International Space University (ISU), France. During my masters, I had opportunity to work as a research scholar at NASA Ames Research Center. The main objective of my research is to focus on application strategies and understand the Additive Manufacturing (AM) capabilities of utilizing in-situ resources for lunar architecture developments. Beside the professional attributes, I am also involved in various outreach activities and volunteering for STEM education.
