About My Research Journey

My research journey is a combined flavour of Computer Aided Design , Computer Aided Manufacturing and mainly Computer Aided Process Planning. I started as a Project trainee in Aeronautical Development Agency, India (2002) and then continued my first experience as Junior Contract Engineer in Gas Turbine Research Establishment (2003) and since then taken every opportunity to embed my skills into the CAD/CAPP/CAM field.
