I completed my undergraduate education in metallurgical engineering from I.I.T. in Bombay, India, a prestigious institution known worldwide in the field of engineering. I did two masters degrees, one in materials science and another in mechanical engineering from the Washington State University. I worked in industry for several years in the US and Canada before doing my PhD at Concordia University in mechanical engineering in 1982. Since then, I have been with the Memorial University and presently I am a professor in faculty of engineering.
I have had a variety of industrial and research experiences in the areas of energy, environment, machine tools, robots, and rotor dynamics which include turbines used in aircrafts, and power generation industry. I think I am best known for my research in the field of solar energy. I have published over 150 research papers which include patents and inventions. I am a fellow of American Society for Mechanical Engineers.
