ACADEMIC QUALIFICATION
Mechanical Engineering from Rajalakshmi Engineering College, Anna University, Chennai, Tamil Nadu, India.
Secured an overall CGPA of 8.79/10.

PROJECTS
Design and Fabrication of a Regenerative Shock Absorber May 2016
Recovered Energy that is lost when a vehicles shock absorber undergoes deflection due to crests and troughs on a
road using a rack and pinion mechanism.

Diesel Cycle Simulator using Octave October 2016
Made p-V plots based on the initial pressure, temperature, bore, stroke, connecting rod length, heat input and
specific heats.
Depending on the number of simulations the user required, several p-V plots were made.

Gear Design Module using Octave November 2016
Designed an optimized gear drive based on the inputs of power to be transmitted and operating speed given by the
user, by calculating parameters such as addendum, pitch circle diameter, etc.

Performance and Emission Appraisal of CME And NME blend as Diesel Engines using nano additives May 2017
Ran performance tests on a Diesel Engine with 20% Corn and Neem methyl ester blends with and without Cobalt
Oxide Nanoadditive and compared the results with that of pure Diesel on the same engine.
